SCHOOL PROGRAMS

For an inspiring, fun-filled educational school adventure that will leave magical memories.

Divers Down UAE offers two programmes: the After School Activity, in conjunction with Esports, and the Week Without Walls programme.


Week Without Walls (WWW)

This programme is run in conjunction with schools in the UAE and neighbouring countries.

Students are involved in a project to encourage them to develop their creativity and develop their interpersonal skills and personal growth.  It is not just a diving course. For example, we believe wildlife conservation is a global concern and divers and the next generation are the best ambassadors of a healthy ocean.

During WWW, students not only achieve their PADI certification — the world’s most popular scuba course — they also achieve another recognition. They will receive official PADI recognition for an environmental project in which they have been involved during WWW. Children will get involved in classroom presentations, social evening and underwater activities such as reef conservation and fish identification.

In the programme, they can also choose between different PADI specialties such as the popular Sea Turtle Awareness course, or the Shark Awareness or Coral Reef Conservation. They will learn about turtles or sharks – and the local issues that may be harming their futures. They will also undertake dives to witness and record sightings. The education we deliver about our precious oceans, and the fascinating and fragile environment they support, can spark a lifelong passion in young people.

After School Activity

Diving is an unrivaled experience, combining adventure, adrenaline, exercise, exploration, tranquility and relaxation.

Scuba diving has obvious relevance to educational studies, bringing to life subjects such as physics, geography, history, and biology, and uses disciplines such as maths with tangible results. The real joy of diving is in the underwater ‘playground’, unlike almost every other sport, it can be safely enjoyed by children of all physical abilities.

During a structured programme, children achieve their PADI Open Water Diver certification, which has introduced millions of people to the adventure diving lifestyle.

For younger divers, from eight years old, we also run a programme tailored to their needs and abilities, the PADI Seal Team. PADI Seal Team gives younger children action-packed fun in a pool through five AquaMissions, each designed to teach children elements of safe, responsible diving, and get them more comfortable in the underwater environment.

All our programmes are customised to meet a school’s specific needs. To enable us to put together the best programme that suits your needs, please contact Michela Colella at michela.c@diversdownuae.com or +971 56 998 1490
