E-mail Print
More than 40 forestry students studying in Solomon Island College of Higher Education (SICHE) will this Thursday learn about marine safety at the marine school, east of Honiara.

Peter Mahoa forestry lecturer confirmed this to Solomon Star yesterday.

 Mahoa said aim of the marine safety briefing is to allow the students to know how to discover sea safety, calculate distance and general precaution on marine safety during travel on sea either by boat or out board motor (OBM).

Mr Mahoa said the students will be at the marine wharf early Thursday morning for preparation before the actual learning will progress.

The learning session will run through the day.

He said the learning session was one of the key major class assignments usually held every year at school of forestry students for more than three years now.

“This marine safety session will also add to their school class assignment,” Mr Mahoa said.
