About Us

The alumni has been established by the New Zealand Maritime School. After a series of informal gatherings of a sample group of students to discuss ideas and what they would like to see on the site, the NZMS developed final proposals, 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, Louise Deehan-Owen, below right, have been charged with the responsbility of bringing the 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 always provide a forum for ideas and contributions.

The website is run as a strictly not for profit site. The support of the site sponsors, Swire Shipping and Quadrant Pacific is greatly appreciated, as are all contributions and content suggestions. This website is an integral part of the NZMS website, which is turn is part of 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 ,mobile 027 480 8071, or email him at contact@geoffmowday.com
