Students taking part in an exciting trip to Borneo later this year were rewarded for their recent fundrasing efforts with diving experience.

Nine students from Skegness Grammar School will be travelling with Camps International as part of a voluntary project to help with community work, environmental work and marine conservation.

While out there, the group will be congratulated for their hard work with PADI Open Water Qualification on Mantanani Island and will also get the chance to visit Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary among other adventures and experiences.

The students have spent the last year-and-a-half fundraising for their trip; each have done this as individuals and as a group through varying activities.

“Skegness Sub Aqua Club was delighted to offer ‘Try Dives’ to the students in preparation for their PADI Open Water Qualification that they will complete in Borneo. The ‘Try Dive’ gave the students a taster as to what they will experience on their course,” said a spokesperson.

Skegness Sub Aqua Club celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2012 and is affiliated to the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) and offer BSAC qualifications which are recognised worldwide.

“At Skegness we offer ‘Try Dives’ and qualifications from Ocean Diver to Advanced Diver and more,” said a spokesperson.

Pool sessions take place at the Embassy Swimming Pool on a Wednesday from 7.30pm to 9pm and club meetings are held in the Skegness working mens club.
