Our Youngest Open Water Student at Elite
After taking part in a Bubble maker (a junior discover SCUBA) on the Beach last summer, a programme that is designed to give youngsters too young to participate in an open water course, a taster of SCUBA, Sammy couldn't wait for his tenth birthday to start his Open Water course.
Sammy's tenth Birthday fell on 21st of January and on the 29th of Jan he completed all of the Junior Open water course. If it wasn't for G, his instructor taking part in a sea clean up programme with Sea Shepherd, Sammy would have completed sooner.
Sammy who hails form Birmingham, has lived in Sharm for the last six years but he's now moving back to UK with his mother and Step Dad Paul.
For the last two years, Sammy has been home taught by his mother Ali, who is a qualified teacher. Sammy has reached a standard higher than most children his age and we at Elite wish him and his parents all the very best with their move back to Blighty, and Sam's integration into mainstream education in the UK.
