The first group of Year 9 Royal Naval cadets were given the opportunity to experience a discover scuba diving session on Monday 4 November.
The session, which was delivered by Nemes Diving Academy in the College’s swimming pool, provides a quick and easy introduction into what it takes to explore the underwater world.
During the session, Cadets got the chance to learn the basic safety guidelines, go over the scuba equipment, as well as find out what it’s like to breathe underwater. Once underwater, the Cadets went through key skills such as how to clear their masks, how to signal underwater and how to check their oxygen. Following the training, the Cadets had the opportunity to swim around and explore under the water.
On completion of their Discover Scuba Diver (DSD), Year 9 Cadets will be able to sign up to the PADI Open Water Certificate course that takes place in the penultimate week of the summer holidays.
