Each year, Fremantle Ports have kindly offered Comet Bay College students an opportunity to be involved in their Maritime Day event. This year we had 9 models and several performers and volunteers attend Maritime Day in Fremantle on 4th November 2017. A huge turnout (over 10,000 visitors) and lots of sunshine made it a memorable day.
Our student models wore Wearable Art Fashion kindly loaned and designed by various local artists. Most of these designs were previous award winners at the Mandurah Wearable Art Competition.
Singers performed on two stages inside and outside B Shed in Fremantle.
A huge thank you to all our students involved, the event sponsors TAMS & Svitzer, Fremantle Ports and also the adult volunteers that assisted Claire Hunt: Fiona Howarth and Charissa Efthyvoulos.

The annual Maritime Day Cocktail Party is held at the Esplanade Hotel for the sponsors, and maritime industry representatives involved in Maritime Day. Defence Transition Mentor Claire Hunt coordinated the entertainment for the evening provided by 2 volunteers, Jasmijn Cornelisse and Shannon White. Their performances were outstanding and enjoyed by all.
