Dive Medical

For safety, all students must complete a Scuba Medical Questionnaire that asks about medical conditions that could be a problem while diving. If none of these apply, you sign the form and you’re ready to start.

Some Considerations

If your son has or has ever had asthma, or wheezing with breathing, or wheezing with exercise; frequent or severe attacks of hay fever or allergy; frequent colds, sinusitis or bronchitis; any form of lung disease; pneumothorax (collapsed lung); other chest disease or chest surgery; behavioural health, mental or psychological problems (panic attack, fear of closed or open spaces); epilepsy, seizures, convulsions or take medications to prevent them; recurring complicated migraine headaches or take medications to prevent them; blackouts or fainting (full/partial loss of consciousness); frequent or severe suffering from motion sickness (seasick, carsick, etc.); dysentery or dehydration requiring medical intervention; a head injury with loss of consciousness in the past five years; recurrent back problems; back or spinal surgery; diabetes; back, arm or leg problems following surgery, injury or fracture; high blood pressure or take medicine to control blood pressure; heart disease; heart attack; angina, heart surgery or blood vessel surgery; sinus surgery; ear disease or surgery, hearing loss or problems with balance; recurrent ear problems; bleeding or other blood disorders; hernia; ulcers or ulcer surgery; a colostomy or ileostomy, he may not be able to participate in the PADI Open Water SCUBA diving course.

If any of the conditions in the medical form or above apply to your son, as a safety precaution, a dive medical must be completed by a specialist physician to assess the condition as it relates to diving, and sign a medical form that confirms that you’re fit to dive.


I recommend that you phone and arrange an appointment as soon as possible. You will need to accompany the boys as their parental guardian/carer and sign the paperwork.

During the 2022-23 summer school holidays, Year 12 student Theo Varvaressos spent two weeks surrounded by many highly-regarded scientists and like-minded students exploring the opportunities available to budding scientists post the HSC.

The experience was split up into two weeks.

Week one was online, where participants networked with industry experts and a range of different scientists such as the CEO of Lockheed Martin (an Australian defence contractor), the NSW state recipient of Australian of the Year Professor Veena Sahajwalla, and UN scientists and board members.

Week two saw participants traveling to a variety of labs specialising in computer science, quantum computing, biomedical sciences, and environmental chemistry. Participants also visited universities, a nuclear reactor, spoke with professors, attended lectures, conducted experiments, and attended a range of social events.

Theo highly recommends Year 11 students apply for this significant opportunity, as he highlights the benefits of meeting and questioning a range of scientists and doctors on their occupations and career paths. He was able to determine the day-to-day tasks for a range of professions and industries, enabling him to determine the appropriate university and degree best suited to his passions.

Theo also mentions the added benefit of a bonus ATAR point!
