School children experience marine life at OBLU Xperience Ailafushi
On 23 February 2023, OBLU Xperience Ailafushi and OBLU SELECT Lobigili organized a memorable under-ocean marine tour for 14 students from Jamaluddin School. The tour was conducted by the in-house Marine Biologist, Giorgia Maggioni, and aimed to sensitise school children between the ages of 5 to 12 years about marine life.
Upon arrival at Ailafushi island, the students and their teachers were warmly welcomed by the resort management and escorted to the Only BLU Under Ocean Restaurant. They were then refreshed with a cold face towel and a delicious beverage. Maggioni started the tour with a presentation about the different types of fish and coral found in the Maldives. The students spotted fish through the windows of the restaurant and marked them in their Educational Marine Booklet, a specially crafted workbook created for the Educational Marine Tour.
After the fascinating tour, the students played and enjoyed snacks and drinks at KIDSX CAMP, the kids club at OBLU Xperience Ailafushi, before departing from the resort. The initiative aims to educate future generations who may decide to have a career in hospitality. Every month, the resort plans to invite students from different schools in Malé for the program.
