We are inspired!
There are some remarkable people in this world who dedicate themselves to youth and community work in the same way they approach life – with love, passion and a spirit of adventure!
Tragically some of these people have passed away too soon, yet they still continue to influence our work at The Sea School…
Helen was an exceptional educator and Duke of Edinburgh Award coordinator for Boonah State High School. Together with her husband Bob, they conducted expeditions for many years, and also helped the Sea School to get established.
Kate was an outdoors woman and a remarkable social worker who is a great inspiration to many people whose lives she touched. Her YOLO approaches continue to influence our philosophy and practice at The Sea School.
Andre was a talented educator – a Steiner School teacher and Blue Peter skipper who was committed to sharing his love and understanding of people, nature and the ocean. He showed us many things including the potential to train skippers within the organisations we partner with.
Blue Peter Bursaries
We offer opportunities for our trainees who have demonstrated a high level of commitment to training and service, and who cannot necessarily afford the cost of continuing such intensive training.
The Helen Houghton Bursary enables Duke of Edinburgh Award students to undertake further training and extension programs towards gaining their MATE Certificate at reduced cost.
The Kate Haisty Bursary enables trainees to undertake our SKIPPER training including Sailing and Paddling Instructors courses at reduced cost.
The Andre Vogel Bursary enables skippers to undertake advanced skipper training at reduced cost.
