This alumni has been established by the New Zealand Maritime School for students who have attended courses at the New Zealand Maritime School. A pilot programme for freight and logistics students and the launch of the freight and logistics website in April 2009 has now been followed by adding a separate website for nautical students, both foreign going and local validity.

After consultation with a selection of students, tutors and industry leaders, NZMS developed final proposals for the alumni, and these have resulted in the website as you see it today. But the content is not closed. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions so if you have something to put forward, email the website administrator.

The site is administered by NZMS, but a former NZMS lecturer Geoff Mowday, below left, assisted by another NZMS senior lecturer, Kees??Bucken, below right, have been charged with the responsbility of bringing the nautical site into reality, and managing the initial content. The NZMS website team meet with students regularly to discuss content, and of course the alumni events and activities always provide a forum for ideas and contributions.

The website is run as a strictly not for profit site. This website is hosted indepdently but has strong links with the NZMS website, and the website of the Manukau Institute of Technology.

If you would like to get in touch with the website team, please call Geoff at 04 235 8901 or email him at
