Students Complete PADI Skin Diver Course

Our High School swim class completed their PADI Skin Diver Course this past month which included an open water snorkel at Eden Rock. The course covered part of a water safety and open water swimming unit. The students obtained knowledge in the underwater world, how to use snorkeling equipment, basic safety guidelines for being in and around water, checking buoyancy, surface swimming, snorkel clearing, and surface dives. In addition, they gained the conceptual knowledge to apply this in other areas, as well as, develop their character by working individually, with a buddy and in a group to adapt & manage themselves in their environment around them. A special thanks to a kind member of our Cayman community, Sonia Bonati, of Seahorse Diving School, who worked in partnership with us and led the course.
