THE WHITE MANGROVE

Corner Inlet is one of the most unique wilderness areas in Australia, supporting a huge number of migratory and wader bird populations and is home to many rare species of plants and marine life.

It’s home to the most southerly population of White Mangrove in the world, a feeding, nesting and breeding area for thousands of waterbirds, home to almost 400 native plant and 160 native animal species and supports local farming and fishing industries. In 1982 Corner Inlet was listed as a wetland of international significance under the Ramsar Convention.

The school ethos is about creating an inclusive learning environment that encourages student agency and active learning.


The White Mangrove represents our community model. CIC is symbolically represented by the Mangrove trees. 

Just like the mangrove, Corner Inlet College provides resilience. Mangoves are interconnected as they protect our Corner Inlet coastline by slowing tidal action. The mangrove roots are habitat for other species’ protection and care. Like all CIC students, each mangrove is unique and grows in it’s own way, at it’s own rate. And the environment around each tree needs to remain healthy to support the mangrove to prosper.
