Year 8 pupils test their skills on Scuba Diving course

A group of adventurous Rydal Penrhos pupils have been busy learning new skills on a special course recently.

The Year 8 group got to grips with the introduction to Scuba Diving tasks, which are being run at the school’s Swimming Pool over a number of weeks.

Upon successful completion of the first stage of the course, pupils will then have the opportunity to take part in their full Scuba Diving course, which will take place later this year.

This is one of a plethora of extra-curricular courses run by staff at the pool, which include gaining a Pool Lifeguard qualification and Open Water Diving courses.

Head of Swimming Maciej Ruszkowski, said: “At Rydal Penrhos we encourage each pupil to be the best they can be, and courses such as this expands their skill set and gives them something different to add on to their CV in the coming years.

“While exam scores will continue to be the benchmark, your extra-curricular achievements and qualifications are something that could set you apart in the ever-competitive job market.”
