At Jervis Bay Royal Australian Navy College young men are trained for a life at sea to defend Australian shores. Aimed at a complete education the course includes science, engineering, mechanics, some humanities, physical education and sport. The trainees are encouraged to participate in extra activities such as debating and drama. After a year at sea they return to specialise in a particular field.
