Dubai and Abu Dhabi School Tour 2020

Updated: Oct 20, 2022

6 schools, 1 dive community event, 4 days – more than 8000 children plus around 100 adults saw Brendon and Liz in action! Here’s a summary of the locations and sharky education led by Shark Guardian at the start of 2020. Thanks again to all who helped make this tour happen!

DAY 1: GEMS World Academy Abu Dhabi

Brendon and Liz presented in Abu Dhabi for the first time and started this tour with a session for the parents. This was a really good opportunity for the parents to understand what their children would be learning later in the day, and the feedback and discussions were fantastic. Later in 2 sessions, around 450 children from Grades 1 to 5 were a fantastic audience to start this UAE visit in style.

DAY 2: The Kindergarten Starters, Dubai

Brendon spent the full day speaking to just over 3500 children Grades 1 to 5 at this school (a new record for Shark Guardian)! 850 five year olds dancing to the Baby Shark song must be one of Brendons’ trip highlights!! Climate Literacy is part of this schools curriculum so the presentations were adapted to include this focus.

DAY 2: GEMS Jumeirah Primary School, Dubai

Meanwhile Liz spent 2 sessions talking sharks and conservation with 600 students from years 3-6 at Jumeirah Primary School. It was nice to return to this school who last hosted Brendon and Liz 5 years ago!
