Khaled Zaki, PADI Ambassador – At The Hamilton International School, our teachers provide engaging lessons that allow our students to learn in different ways. We also organize opportunities for them to learn from and be inspired by amazing role models.
Recently, our Early Years children had the opportunity to meet a real-life marine expert!
Khaled Zaki, PADI Ambassador from Qatar Marine visited our school to speak with the children about their ‘Animal’ and ‘Under the Sea’ topics.
We knew Khaled would be a great speaker to really bring the topics to life for our students, and he did. There was real-life footage of animals and ‘Ocean Treasures’ for the children to watch. The children enjoyed watching videos of Khaled diving. They asked him lots of questions about his under the sea adventures.
Khaled is committed to local ocean preservation, and we also wanted him to provide our children with an understanding of their local environment in Qatar.
A great deal of his work focuses on keeping the seas and oceans clean and reducing the use of plastic. It was fantastic to see the children so engaged and to hear our youngest children speak so passionately about the need to care for the world’s oceans for the sake of marine life. Khaled introduced the children to project A.W.A.R.E: a campaign which focuses on both local and global change for the oceans and the communities that depend on them.
Khaled, PADI ambassador, inspired so many of our students to ensure they do their part in protecting the Oceans.
