Reef Guardians Schools Overview

Reef Guardian School LogoDoes your school have what it takes to make a difference and keep the Reef great?

Do you and your students want to help protect the Great Barrier Reef and other important marine environments for the future?

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority is offering schools throughout Australia the opportunity to be involved in an exciting and innovative educational program.

The Reef Guardian Schools Program encourages schools to commit to the protection and conservation of the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.

All schools in Australia, no matter where they're located, can have some impact on the Great Barrier Reef and other coral reefs around the world.

Marine ecosystems are all connected in some way, so even if your school is thousands of kilometres from the Great Barrier Reef learning to live, work and play in a sustainable way will help to protect your local waterways and the Great Barrier Reef.

Reef Guardian Schools help to protect the Reef by promoting their ideas, initiatives and activities to communities to encourage all people to "do their bit to look after it!"

By being involved, your school will have a range of new ideas, opportunities and resources for teaching activities at your fingertips.  The Program focuses on the areas of:

  • Curriculum offerings
  • Management of Resources
  • On-the-ground projects in your school and community
  • Education of your community

The Reef Guardian Schools Program is recognised throughout Queensland as one of the leading environmental education programs.
