Each year as part of Year 10 Marine Science, the students get to take part in a Scuba training excursion, followed by an exciting scuba dive excursion off Rye pier.
Year 10 Marine Science Scuba Excursion
On Friday 11th of September, the Year 10 Marine Science students went to WAVES for an introduction to scuba diving.
Students were both excited and nervous about the activity but by the end of the excursion everyone had a huge smile. Many commented on how much fun it was, particularly when completing skills such as clearing your mask and becoming neutrally buoyant. A big thanks to Academy of Scuba for their professionalism and enthusiasm.
Year 10 Marine Science Scuba Adventure
On Friday 30th of October, a group of Year 10 Marine Science students went scuba diving at Rye Pier.
Most found it challenging to move around whilst being neutrally buoyant and were glad to have practiced in an earlier excursion at WAVES.
Students were amazed at the colour and life they found under Rye Pier. They were lucky enough to see a spotted ray, seahorses and a cuttlefish.
All of the students had a fantastic time and I am sure some are looking forward to further ocean adventures during the summer holidays.
A big thanks to Academy of Scuba for their professionalism and enthusiasm when working with our students.
