Need to Know:

  • Your kids can be wildlife heroes! Please “bring 3 for the sea”: bring 3 recyclable plastic bottles with you to AQWA. We will place them in with our containers for change and the 10c collected will help the AQWA foundation; reduce plastics in the ocean, rescue and rehabilitate injured marine turtles and protect marine habitats. 
  • Parents are expected to stay with their child during the class. Infant siblings under the age of 2 are welcome to attend free of charge as long as they do not participate in the course activities; please add them to your booking using the Infant $0 fare, so we can accommodate numbers/prams etc. Additional siblings aged 2-5 that DO want to participate need to pay the Additional Child/Sibling fare of just $17 per child. While the program is recommended for ages 3-5, capable & keen 2 year olds are welcome. Additional Adults/Parents that wish to attend the session pay standard AQWA Entry fee.
  • AQWA’s Sea School is created by our qualified Marine Biologist who has over 15 years’ experience in creating public education programs that generate wonder and inspire respect for our oceans. Previously run as the term-long "Wonder Kids Workshop", the new Sea School format now allows parents to book individual classes, rather than a whole term at a time.
  • All sessions have learning links to kindy and pre-primary curriculums; include fundamental movement skills; and target the fine motor control skills that will be used for writing. Most importantly, we will help your child approach learning with curiosity - kids just love our SEA SCHOOL!
