Scuba diving, snorkeling and sailing highlighted the spring break Caribbean trip March 28 to April 10, chaperoned by science teachers Florence Pi and Narae Park.

All 10 students on the trip became scuba diving certified.

Participants sailed to the islands of St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, St. Christopher and Saba. Broadreach organization provided a boat, captain and diving instructor.

Collin Shannon ’17 said his favorite part was a dive through a shipwreck off the island of St. Christopher.

“It was great to spend my spring break doing things that I wouldn’t be able to do at home,” Shannon said.

Participants bonded and learned teamwork skills.

“Our kids are really smart, so it was nice to offer them an opportunity to enjoy learning and ask questions,” Pi said.
