The Preparation Year can be viewed as a formative year for young adults to become independent and learn a great deal of responsibility prior to engaging in University life. The prep year is built on Fundamental Biblical Truths and Christian Beliefs.

Shark & Dive Tour for Prep Year Students

Aliwal Shoal
Our Prep Year students and outside students that enrol for the Shark Life Conservation Course get the option to go on a shark dive trip to Aliwal Shoal just south of Durban.

Aliwal Shoal has diverse marine life including large predators and is popular as a recreational scuba diving destination. The Shoal is known especially for its abundance of Grey nurse sharks (known locally as ragged tooth sharks or "raggies").
After doing their Open Water Certification, our students have the option of going on a Scuba Dive trip to Sodwana Bay. Here's a short video of what to expect.

Sodwana Bay is located on the east coast of South Africa, in one of the most unique and unspoiled parts of the world.

Shark & Dive Tour

The Shark & Dive Tour is for conservation awareness and diving experience furthering the student’s knowledge and skills.


This tour will take place in KZN where we visit Sodwana Bay and the Aliwal Shoal.

THIS LEARNING EXPERIENCE

• Is a great follow up of the Shark Life Conservation course and gives the students the opportunity to see and experience the grace and beauty of these misunderstood animals first hand. Sharks are a vital part of the ecosystem and they need to be protected.
• This tour is also about raising awareness about the plastic pollution problem the world is currently facing and the impact that it has on the ocean and environment.
• The students will gain valuable diving experience.

Aliwal Shoal

The Aliwal Shoal is a rocky reef which is the remains of an ancient sand dune approximately 5 kilometres off the coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Aliwal Shoal has a diverse marine life including large predators and is popular as a recreational scuba diving destination. The Shoal is known especially for its abundance of Grey nurse sharks (known locally as ragged tooth sharks or "raggies") between July and November when the sharks congregate there to mate.

We protect what we love. Education is vital to understanding which leads to conservation.
