Duke Of Edinburgh's Award Scheme
Scuba Diving Program
Physical Recreation/Skill

Scuba diving is a popular choice for many students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award because it incompasses so much of what the scheme is about; new skills, physical recreation, non-competitive, progressively demanding, adventeurous, whilst helping others.

For students on their Bronze Award, we offer a 3 month scuba diving program. Students meet weekly; for the fist two months they work on obtaining their PADI scuba diving liscence; for the last month they focus on combining their scuba diving skills with conservation on projects designed to look after and protect our local marine enviroment.
