We have had a busy few weeks what with the new pool at South Woodhan Ferrers Leisure Centre and all the school teaching we are now doing.
The South Woodhan pool is going well , Heather and the seal team are have fun and there diving skills and confidence is improving all the time.At the same time we are useing the pool for other courses Gill has been puting her DMTs though there paces with the swims , floats and snorkel and will soon start on there skills circuit.
The teaching in local schools has been going well , we are working with Billericay , Mayflower , James Honsby , Castledon and the Academys all of which have there different problems.Working with different young people gives me a great feeling of giveing something back to people who would not normaly get the opportunity to dive and all the staff who have helpd out say its very rewarding.
We hope that most of the students will be going to Open Water with us in the summer . We will be going down to Buckland Lake in Kent. Some will be in school time others at the weekend . The group we took down last year from James Hornsby had a great time and all passed. The comments we got from other divers around on that weekend where very complementary and this from a school which locals say has a problem with students ?
