Students in Ferry Visit
Some future Merchant Navy Officers, part of Lews Castle Colleges “Access to Merchant Navy” course visit to ferry
“Pictured above are some future Merchant Navy Officers, part of Lews Castle Colleges “Access to Merchant Navy” course, with the Chief Officer, and Chief Engineer, of CalMac’s M.V. Heridean Isles.
The students were welcomed onboard by the Captain, Officers and Crew and given a tour of the vessel, and the opportunity to look behind the curtain into the working heart of an operational ship.
The chance to see the day to day functioning of the ferry, and discuss with those serving on her, the ins and outs of life at sea, the dedication and professionalism required, along with answering all the students questions was greatly appreciated.
Moving out of the classroom into a full working environment allows the class to reflect, and put into practice what the have learnt, and provides a great practical touchstone for their ongoing studies.”
