F1 in Schools team at Australian Maritime College
At the recent Pacific 2019 Conference, in conjunction with the Naval Shipbuilding College, PCS students from our F1 in Schools team, Ascension, met the Minister for Defence, The Hon Melissa Price MP. The students also had the opportunity for a tour of major navel companies from around the world.

REA partners with the Department of Defence through the Schools Pathways Program to support an increase in the pool of STEM-educated students and to inform Australia’s youth about employment opportunities and pathways into the defence industry, including in the National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise.
Our students were great ambassadors and represented PCS in an impeccable manner and have been commended for their behaviour by the Australian Maritime College:
I am not certain if you are aware that students from your school attended an event for Pacific19 at the Australian Maritime College in Sydney. I am emailing you to express how very impressed I was with the behaviour of your students during the event as well as before and afterwards. Students were polite, kind, and most importantly engaged. They are a credit to your institution.
