MDC NSW Ballina

The Bal­lina High School Marine Dis­cov­ery and Resource Cen­tre in north east­ern New South Wales (NSW) was opened in 1999 by the NSW Min­is­ter for Fish­eries Hon. Eddie Obied MLC. The cen­tre sup­ports the teach­ing of Marine Stud­ies in NSW schools by edu­cat­ing vis­it­ing stu­dents from other schools and pro­vid­ing resources and train­ing to teachers.

The Cen­tre and school’s edu­ca­tion pro­grams have become major ser­vices to the com­mu­nity. They pro­vide hands-on and prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ences for preschool, pri­mary, high school and ter­tiary aged stu­dents, and raise com­mu­nity aware­ness of marine ecol­ogy issues. A long his­tory of teach­ing marine stud­ies at the school has led to the open­ing of this Centre.
