RELEASE: Snorkel Clinic will open up a whole new world for students!

Providenciales – School students will have an opportunity to discover a whole new world at a snorkel clinic next week. The clinic, slated for Wednesday 23 March, is a School for Field Studies initiative and will be held in collaboration with AMANYARA, the Edward C. Gartland Youth Center, and the Department of Environment & Maritime Affairs (DEMA).

“On South Caicos, the School for Field Studies provides opportunities for young community members to discover and explore our natural resources through swimming lessons and the SFS Snorkel Club. The School for Field Studies is excited to work in collaboration with AMANYARA, the Edward C. Gartland Youth Center, and DEMA to extend our community engagement efforts to Providenciales and introduce local youth to the underwater world. Our students are excited to share what they have learned on South Caicos about coral reefs and their value, and hope to encourage greater stewardship and understanding of this very important natural resource.” Said Heidi Hertler, Center Director, School for Field Studies Center for Marine Resource Management

Registered school students, between the ages of 8 and 15 with at least a moderate swimming ability, will join the SFS college students for a 1:1 (student: instructor) ‘learn to snorkel’ clinic where participants will get to explore the underwater coral reefs of Providenciales, while learning to use and care for their snorkel equipment. The morning will include an introduction to snorkelling, educational and fun marine conservation games and in-water snorkel training.

Should your son or daughter be interested, please contact the Edward C. Gartland Youth Centre at 331 – 9602.
