24 Pinelands High School students had the privilege of being invited by AMSOL (African Maritime Solutions) to visit the SA Amandla (previously known as the John Ross), one of South Africa’s famous emergency response tugboats, before she makes her final voyage to India in September.

This special day involved an exhibition about the life and legacy of the 48 year old tugboat and a tour led by those who work on board.

In addition, Brian Ingpen (past teacher and Principal of Pinelands High School, maritime educator and journalist) wrote most of the material displayed in the tug exhibition.

Thank you to AMSOL for this wonderful opportunity.
