Marine Discovery Centre

Introduction to the Marine Discovery Resource Centre

A special feature of our school is the world-class Marine Discovery Centre.  Unique in South Australia, the centre alows our students to learn first-hand about their marine environment and ocean conservation.

The Marine Discovery Centre (MDC) is part of Star of the Sea School and our students use the centre on Mondays and Tuesdays. For the rest of the week schools in South Australia can book in for an excursion experience.

Because of the School’s location and the MDC, Marine Studies is a key part of the Science curriculum at Star of the Sea. And after eight years of study in Marine Science some of our Year 7 students become MDC leaders and assist with other schools on excursions to learn more about our wonderful marine life.
