wiss-philippines-trip-5Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) Students in Grades 10 and 11 were given the opportunity to do their International Award at Sandingan Dive Resort in the Philippines. WISS proudly partners with The Sandingan Dive Resort, a dream project opened by WISS alumni the van Doorne family. Richelle, Erwin, Kai and Finn left WISS last year in order to follow their dreams of operating their own resort in order to share their passion for diving with visitors. 

In order to prepare for the trip, students first had to pass a written test and attend skills sessions in the WISS pool. Once they arrived at Sandingan Island they started the last part of their PADI Scuba dive certificate. For some it was quite scary to do all the skills in the ocean rather than in the safety of a pool, but in the end they all succeeded and went on fun dives for up to 18m! They found clownfish (nemo), lionfish, a jeep, a frogfish, a turtle and lots more. They also discovered what impact all the plastic trash makes to nature and in the end to people during their hikes, beach cleaning, reef cleaning and snorkeling. Outside of their resort they also got an impression of how life is different to their lives in Shanghai. Congratulations to the group of PADI Open Water Scuba Divers and International Silver Award students.
