The 4th graduation ceremony for Hansupul Haenyeo School, with approximately 400 people in attendence including the graduates and locals, was held at Gwideok harbor in Hallim, Jeju City on Aug. 27.

During the graduation ceremony, 48 students received diplomas. The students entered the school on May 3, studying how to use haenyeo equipment, how to dive, breathe, and gather marine products.

Two Korean-Americans were among the graduates. Ha Eun hye, 23, first came to Jeju on a Fulbright research grant. Thirteen other students were from different areas and provinces of Korea.

Hansupul Haenyeo School first opened in 2008 and for the past four years has graduated 151 students (116 Jeju residents, 29 mainlanders, six foreigners/immigrants). It is succeeding in preserving the Jeju haenyeo culture.

In particular, US ambassador Kathleen Stephens visited the school last June and experienced the haenyeo culture.
