A Close Encounter with Dolphins

While undertaking one of their weekly training sessions on the Moray Firth, the Gordonstoun Surf Lifesaving students had a once in a lifetime encounter with a pod of 10 dolphins. They were about to end their training session for the afternoon when they were suddenly joined by the dolphins for half an hour of fun in the water.  This is a busy time of year for  senior students, who are working hard for their GCSEs and A levels and this will have provided much needed relief from their studies.

Philip Schonken, Head of Beach Lifeguards said; “The experience our students had swimming with dolphins during their service training session to become Surf Lifesavers is just one example of the many magical things about this part of the world and it really highlights the wonderful opportunities presented to students at Gordonstoun.  I can’t think of a better way for them to have de-stressed in preparation for their exams.”
