South Fremantle Senior High School is a co-educational school for students aged 13-17 years located 5 kilometres from the port city of Fremantle. The school has strongly represented the interests of the students of greater Fremantle for over 40 years. The multi-cultural diversity, rich maritime environment and vibrant artistic community have enriched the learning of all students and allowed a range of programs to be offered.

Achieving Top Public School Awards every year since 2006, the school is proud to be Australia’s first official Carbon Neutral School.

South Fremantle Senior High School is a marine specialist school predominantly concerned with Ocean Literacy. The school is currently working in conjunction with UWA in supporting the Oceans Blue Institute. Year 11's are engaged in an inaugural sea grass planting/monitoring project in Jervoise Bay under the direction of Marine Biologist John Statton. Students in Marine Studies earn their Recreational Skippers Ticket, NPHS qualification, SCUBA Open Water & ADVANCED Open Water Dive Certifications, study aquaculture and engage in SEA Trek programs whilst annually participating in underwater clean ups along the local coastline on SCUBA. Developing our program to include the Tangaroa Blue Beach Clean-up &/or responsibility for a particular section of coastline, will only complement our program. The aim to embed Ocean Literacy and promote sustainability is the cornerstone of the Marine Studies program at SFSHS.

South Fremantle Senior High SchoolOn Friday 25th October Marine Specialist Program students in years 9 & 10 joined with Tangaroa Blue Foundation, Coastwatch & the CSIRO to conduct a Beach Clean-up and debris recording activity. The push for such action follows fast on the ever increasing awareness of the global problem of marine debris and waterways pollution.

Students in year 10 managed students in year 9 to work in groups that ran transects along Woodman Point Beach, then using gloves and official bags/record sheets, proceeded to spend an hour collecting and recording the nature of the debris on the beach – noting the distance down the beach and the general surrounds. Students conducted themselves in an orderly but enjoyable fashion – knowing they were assisting the local coastline in remaining as litter free as possible.
