Spectacular Dives and Memorable Experiences

Year 10 Boys’ Cairns Scuba Trip

As part of the Year 10 Outdoor Activities Program, the annual Scuba Trip to Cairns was undertaken and embraced by a hearty band of Year 10 Scotch boys, who had completed all their theory and pool skills development at Scotch, and were on a referral course to complete their Open Water Diving Course.

The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) open water diving course requires about 18 hours of theory study and examination, a medical and underwater skill development – not an easy task and a demanding service.

The boys enjoyed 10 dives off the spectacular Great Barrier Reef and completed their Open Water PADI Licence – so they are now licensed to dive anywhere in the world up to 18m. The dives were spectacular and the experience was memorable. Staff accompanying the journey were Mr Riley (Teacher-in-Charge), Mr Jonas and Mr Braidwood.
