Wahooo! to launch kids’ educational packages
Manama, October 23, 2010
Bahrain-based Wahooo!, an indoor/outdoor waterpark and a unit of Majid Al Futtaim Leisure, plans to offer educational packages for students aged eight to 16.
The new schools programme will offer school children a chance to visit and learn more about the waterpark’s working, lifeguarding, water testing and also a technical tour of the plant rooms.
The educational tours also include playtime at the end of the “learning session”. For every ten children taking part in the programme, one supervisor can enter the park for free, a statement said.
“What most schools have appreciated from the start is the security that the covered, enclosed area within Wahooo! offers,” said Shama Uchil, sales and marketing manager at Wahooo!
“It is secure, well lifeguarded and has only one entry and exit point so is perfect for hosting large school groups. The water park also offers comfortable water temperatures at a standard 30 degrees Celsius all year round which is perfect for protecting children of all ages from the harsh temperature conditions outdoors,” she added.
The packages for children aged 8 years include ‘How was the water park built and how is it run’ and ‘A day in the life of a lifeguard’.
For children aged 13 plus, the programmes include ‘What is water chemistry and how is it tested’, as well as a technical tour of the plant rooms, water treatment facilities and learning other technical requirements needed to run the park.
“As part of the Water Chemistry tour, students can perform practical pool water tests, so they learn firsthand how the PH levels in water are checked and the importance of clean, hygienic pool water,” said Uchil.
“This is a newly introduced educational package which has already received an enthusiastic reaction from international baccalaureate (IB) students from Bahrain School, who have experienced the tour and were quite pleased to participate in it,” she concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
