Durban ships agent Sturrock Shipping and supply chain manager
Olam International recently sponsored a tour of the cargo ship
Salon for the 26 pupils studying Maritime Economics at New Forest
New Forest High School is one of only three schools in SA that
offers the maritime economics course as a subject. It was
introduced to pupils in Grade 10. In addition to Maritime
Economics, pupils also get the opportunity to do the
internationally recognised Understand Shipping Certificate Course,
available through the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers.
"Ever since the subject was introduced, many of the pupils have
left school and gone straight into the shipping industry locally
and internationally. From the feedback we receive from companies
who employ our pupils and tertiary institutions who enroll our
pupils, we are proud to learn that they are far ahead of the rest
of the candidates they receive", said Shaun Coleman, Marine Manager
He said the school's Maritime Economics department would never
survive without the consistent support it received from the
different institutions that make financial donations, donate course
material, or provide work experience.
