This flyer explains EcoMarines and our secondary school program. You can also send anyone this link to our Secondary School Program page which has program and event details.
We are happy to come do a presentation to students at any stage. However, here is a presentation you can use if needed! Feel free to add or delete any content.
Your son/daughter has been selected to represent XXXXX School as an EcoMarines Ambassador!
Tangalooma EcoMarines have planned an exciting year ahead. Please complete the online details form (link below) with your contact details to receive event information and provide your son/daughter’s shirt size so we can order a free EcoMarines shirt for them to get presented at school.

To follow EcoMarines events, activities and updates throughout the year, please follow them:
If your school has been in the program for more than one year, your new ambassadors may benefit from a mentor meeting rather than an assembly presentation! A member of the EcoMarines team will come out to meet your new ambassadors and support crew to discuss an action plan for the year and what sustainability initiatives they should focus on. Email us to organise shirts to be sent out to the school and to book a meeting!
You could even have a “passing on the role” ceremony if last years ambassadors are available. They could hand out shirts to the new ambassadors!
You can also play this original assembly video too!
To prepare your ambassadors for the year ahead, it is a great idea for your new ambassadors to have a read through the previous years’ Year Book from The Wave. This book has articles about environmental initiatives that schools have been successful in and is perfect to gather inspiration and motivation. For teachers, we have created a Teachers Handbook to help you navigate the EcoMarines year.
The EcoMarines Year Book is useful to share with all EcoMarines students at the start of the year.
The Year Book includes:
Articles from EcoMarines schools
The Teacher Handbook is useful to help teachers organise activities, challenges and events for their EcoMarine students. The handbook has information on:
our program and online kit,
ideas on activities and challenges
resources and important information
We understand how difficult the selection process can be when appointing ambassadors. If you are able to manage, we highly recommend appointing all other interested students as “support crew.”
Support crew can attend meetings, share ideas and get involved with most of the challenges.
Support crew are invited to Care 4 Country and The Wave. Before each event we will email teachers invitations which you can extend to support crew students.
Shirts for ‘Support Crew’ are available for purchase at a discounted rate for schools for orders over 5 shirts (kid and adult shirts available).
Cost: $15 (including GST and shipping)
Payment: EcoMarines will invoice the school for the TOTAL cost.
Order: Please send parents the Shirt Order Form template we’ve provided below, then email us the size and quantity of each shirt and we’ll arrange everything.
Purchase an outdoor sign to put on the fence in front of your school. Prices vary with small, medium and large sizes.
We have the MEDIUM sign in stock and it costs $45 + GST and includes delivery. Invoice sent to the school.
If you prefer not to purchase a sign, you can print off the poster to display in your classroom.
We have a few ‘Borrow Boxes’ that include a marquee, photo station, promotional materials, educational games, posters, and giveaways! These boxes are perfect for a school fete or community event to educate others on what EcoMarines is all about and how to save our environments.
Email Dini to secure a Borrow Box for the date of your event! Once the date is secured, the box will be delivered to your school prior to your event.
