Educational Marine Tour for School Children at Only BLU
OBLU Xperience Ailafushi and OBLU SELECT Lobigili organized a memorable under ocean marine tour on 23 February 2023 for 14 students from Jamaluddin School. The students along with four teachers arrived at Ailafushi island at 15:30. After a warm welcome by the resort management, they were escorted to Only BLU Under Ocean Restaurant where they refreshed themselves with a cold face towel and a delicious beverage.
In-house Marine Biologist, Giorgia Maggioni conducted the Marine Tour. She started with a presentation about the different types of fish and coral found in the Maldives. After the presentation, students spotted fish through the windows of the restaurant and marked them in their Educational Marine Booklet. This booklet is a specially crafted workbook created for the Educational Marine Tour.
After the fascinating tour, students played and enjoyed snacks and drinks at KIDSX CAMP – the kids club at OBLU Xperience Ailafushi before departure from the resort.
The Educational Marine Tour sensitises school children between the ages of 5 to 12 years about marine life. They identify fish and corals, connecting with the country’s fragile ecosystem. This initiative attempts to educate future generations who may decide to have a career in hospitality. Every month the resort will invite students from different schools in Malé for the program.
