APPOINTING AMBASSADORS, SUPPORT CREW & MINI MARINES
This flyer explains EcoMarines and our primary school program. You can also send anyone this link to our Primary School Program page which has program and event details.
EcoMarines PowerPoint Presentation
We are happy to come do a presentation to students at any stage. However, here is a presentation you can use if needed! Feel free to add or delete any content.
STEP 1: APPLICATION PROCESS
There are several different ways you can appoint your four ambassadors. Here are some ideas:
Application Form: Download the template below for students to write a persuasive letter expressing why they should be an EcoMarines ambassador. This form includes useful information for parents.
Video Application: Students can get creative at home and make a video to show they'd be a great ambassador. Example below.
Presentation: Students can do a presentation (speech, PowerPoint) on why they want to be an ambassador. See Criteria Sheet below.
Interview: Ambassadors from the previous year interview and help select new ambassadors to take over.
Voting: Some schools have a voting process. Sometimes this is linked with the environmental leadership selection process.

STEP 2: EMAIL TO PARENTS
We have on electronic form (http://ems.gs/3vvN0cjbupS) for parents to complete. It asks media release, shirt size and provides us with the parents' contact details to send event information. The form loads into our database so we can get shirts organised asap.
Here is an email template for sending parents the electronic form:
Your son/daughter has been selected to represent XXXXX School as an EcoMarines Ambassador!
Tangalooma EcoMarines have planned an exciting year ahead. Please complete the online details form (link below) with your contact details to receive event information and provide your son/daughter’s shirt size so we can order a free EcoMarines shirt for them to get presented at school.

STEP 3: ASSEMBLY PRESENTATION
Please let Kylie know you have selected your ambassadors. Yay! You can schedule an assembly date for her to announce the ambassadors and present their shirts.
We also provide a free t-shirt for the support crew teacher(s). Just let us know your size and we will get one organised! Size chart is below.
APPOINTING SUPPORT CREW AND MINI MARINES (Optional)
We understand how difficult the selection process can be when appointing ambassadors. If you are able to manage, we highly recommend appointing all other interested students as "support crew."
Support crew can attend meetings, share ideas and get involved with most of the challenges.
If you have students in the younger years wanting to be involved you can appoint them as MINI MARINES! :)
Support crew are invited to Care 4 Country and The Wave. Before each event we will email teachers invitations which you can
extend to support crew students.
Shirts for 'Support Crew' and 'Mini Marines' are available for purchase at a discounted rate for schools (kid and adult shirts available).
Cost: $15 (including GST)
Payment: EcoMarines will invoice the school for the TOTAL cost.
Order: Please send parents the Shirt Order Form template we’ve provided below, then email us the size and quantity of each shirt and we'll arrange everything.
Shirt Sizing Guidelines
If it's too difficult to organise shirts, you can send parents the following link to order themselves online (however, shirts cost $45 including shipping): https://shop.qtco.com.au/ecomarinescrew/
Below (and under EcoMarines Resources) we have certificates specifically for support crew and mini marines:
