Senior EcoMarines

Our EcoMarines Seniors attended the inaugural CHECK Event (Culture, History, Environment, Careers and Kindness). This event hosted some amazing guest speakers who participated in panels centered around Eco-Activism and Careers in the Environmental Space. The students networked with industry experts, scientists, businesses, local organisations and traditional custodians.

CHECK showed me all the ways I can bring sustainability into my future career. We had an opportunity to talk to real professionals in the field and that was really inspiring: before CHECK I had no idea where sustainability could lead. By seeing what others have created, I have been inspired to do the same. - Matilda Grant, Year 9.

The Port of Brisbane team were very impressed by our students’ innovative ideas and questions and have been awarded the winning prize for their Innovation Competition. Congratulations Senior EcoMarines! They have won the opportunity to meet with the CEO of Port of Brisbane to discuss their innovative ideas for the port. 

We look forward to seeing what’s next for these leaders for the future.
