WHY INTRODUCE SCUBA DIVING TO YOUR SCHOOL?
Planet scuba has conducted many scuba programs with schools in the local area. We have found it to be an excellent way of engaging students into school life. It's an exciting activity which will introduce your students to a simply breathtaking world and provide a license for adventure and discovery! Scuba diving also has a really valuable place in a schools educational system. It facilitates students to socialise and develop friendships, as well as teaching students a responsibility for themselves and for others. The capacity to understand ones self, to appreciate one’s feelings, fears and motivations and to be able to use such information to regulate our lives is
paramount for any individual. Through Scuba Diving, a person is constantly required to reflect on what is going on for them both physically and emotionally.
We at Planet Scuba feel that this process enables students to transfer this process to other areas of their lives.
What can we do for your school?
A Discover Scuba session is PADI's entry level course. It is essentially a 'try dive' to give the students an opportunity to have a go! They are low cost and only take about 1 – 2 hours. Students are introduced to some of the basic theory of scuba and safety concepts before getting in the water and Scuba diving! These sessions are designed to be very relaxed and fun and an ideal introduction to scuba diving. They also provide a good foundation for students wishing to progress to a full scuba certification.
This course is the first step to becoming a fully qualified scuba diver. The course is split between theory and practical sessions. During the course students complete 5 knowledge development sections covering the theory of scuba diving and 5 practical sessions in a swimming pool. All these courses can be tailored to suit the specific needs of each school. This course can be completed over 1 weekend or over several sessions.
Open water dives
The last step! Students complete 4 final open water dives to achieve their scuba certification. These dives can be completed in the UK or as part of a school trip.
Planet scuba has 12 years experience in organising, running & leading trips to a wide variety of UK and overseas diving locations including the Red Sea and Malta. A popular option for school groups is to complete the referral course in the UK and the Open Water dives in the Red Sea or Malta.
