    waterways
  • Construction of boats
    vessels and accessories
  • Navigational skills
  • Weather forecasting
  • Water-related first aid
  • Fishing
  • Sea water and foreshore ecology and geography

The Sea Academy is connected to Mulberry Grove School and its aquatics programme provides the basis for the school's Health and Physical Wellbeing programmes in term's 1 and 4.

SEA is co-ordinated by Rendt Gorter  with help from the MGS teaching staff and local volunteers, some of whom have had Waterwise training.
