During science lessons, 5th graders learned about the different ecosystems. As marine ecosystems are among the largest of Earth’s aquatics ecosystems, we wanted to let them to explore the underwater world in a very dynamic approach. The DAA Aquatics Department have developed a partnership with Divers Down. For them, Wildlife conservation is a global concern and the next generation are the best ambassadors of a healthy ocean. The 5th graders attended a captivating presentation about scuba divers who explore the underwater world for them. Following the presentation, Divers Down have accepted to give an opportunity for each student to try scuba diving in our pool at DAA during their swimming lesson.
The DAA swimming community celebrated their end of season with a closing ceremony held in the auditorium on May 1st. Swimmers were rewarded for their great performances during the Leopards Swimming Cup hosted by our school last Saturday. Our swimming team finished first overall and earned the trophy for the best school. We had a successful season and are looking forward to seeing all the swimmers reunited for the swimming season 2019-2020.
