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.

APPOINTING AMBASSADORS

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 (or video) 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/3vvN0iNbwve) 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: 

Congratulations!

 

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.

Thank you!

STEP 3: ASSEMBLY PRESENTATION

Please let Hannah know when you have selected your ambassadors. Yay! You can schedule an assembly date for an EcoMarines team member 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.

STEP 4: PREPARING YOUR AMBASSADORS 

To prepare your ambassadors for the year ahead, we have provided a handbook for both the ambassadors and the teachers involved in the program. In addition to the handbook, the ambassadors are encouraged to complete our online training kit which you can find here. If you have past ambassadors who still want to be involved in the EcoMarines, then they can utilize our Alumni Kit.

  • what the EcoMarines can do to help!

The Teacher Handbook is useful to help teachers organise activities, challenges and events for their EcoMarine students. The handbook has information on:

  • our program and online kit,

  • events,

  • ideas on activities and challenges

  • resources and important information

Our Alumni Kit is a special resource for graduated EcoMarines!

This alumni kit features;

  • details on keeping in touch,

  • an environmental bucketlist,

  • tips for volunteering, and

  • environmental career inspiration!

APPOINTING SUPPORT CREW

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.

EVENTS

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

Shirts for 'Support Crew' are available for purchase at a discounted rate for schools.

Cost: $15 (including GST and shipping)

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/
