The 2022-2023 academic school year is flying by and the Ocean Academy (OA) students and graduates have already accomplished so many amazing activities.

Ocean Academy is proud to have more and more female graduates every single year.  And female students at Ocean Academy are making and leaving their marks with the following prestigious awards.

Congratulations to the following current Ocean Academy female students for these 2022-2023 honors and awards.

Lily, Jasmine, Diany and Jadiery were appointed to the Belize Children’s Parliament.  On November 25, young people from all over Belize were assigned to be the Governor General, Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President of the Senate, the Leader of the Opposition, and parliamentarians.  The National Children’s Parliament recognizes the right of children to have spaces for their voices and opinions to be heard. The future is truly in the hands of our children.

Daiannie, Emily, Iby, Kabanina and Merary represented OA at the Public Utilities Commission’s National Website Coding Competition (formerly the Raspberry Pi Jam competition).
We are so proud of them!

Competitive Sports
Athletes and fans are all so happy for the return of competitive sporting events in Belize after two school years when we were unable to hold athletic events due to the global pandemic.  The female athletic program is growing at Ocean Academy.  We fielded teams in volleyball and in basketball and will soon enter soccer season.  The ladies basketball team won the right to compete in Regionals this coming Saturday in Orange Walk.  Check our Facebook page for the most current scores and events.

PE Field
Thank you to the Ross Shepard Interact Club for the start-up funds for Ocean Academy to rent and prepare a PE field for PE classes and school wide assemblies.  We are seeking monthly sponsors for the ongoing rental of the field. The rent is $75 USD per month.
