Seal joins sailing program

29 May 2012

Altona Meadows Primary School students were joined by an inquisitive seal during their sailing session in Victoria Harbour on May 18.

The grade 6 students were attending a program run by the Docklands Yacht Club – funded by the Youth Foundation of Victoria.

Altona Meadows teacher Greg Hall said: “The students were very keen to tell the other students what they had been doing and how good sailing was.”

“They were still keen to share their experiences on the Monday which made for some lively discussion.”

According to Docklands Yacht Club spokesperson Coral Allen, Mr Hall has even suggested that the school’s teachers come back as a group without the kids.

Ms Allen said the club had also recently hosted a group of refugees from the Western English Language School (WELS).

“These students are refugees and the school felt it would be a good way to help them integrate into the community,” she said.

“The City of Maribyrong is funding these sail experience programs with WELS and also two groups associated with the Western Bulldogs and their community engagement program on Sunday, June 17 and July 22.

Ms Allen can be contacted on 0429 868 304.
