Our pool is closing for winter – see you next summer!

Summer is now behind us and the school pool will be closing for the colder months from 2pm Thursday 13 April 2017.

This has been another great season at the pool, more than 150 families bought tags this year and enjoyed cooling off in the pool in the warmer summer months.

Special thanks to Todd Wheeler, Creative Kitchens, Mark Crowther and our team of pool testers – Nicky Hunt, Tony Gleeson, Richard Sumner, Frans Wackenier, Jeroen Schoorel and Mark Aitken – and to everyone else who generously gave their time and resources to make our pool such a valued part of the community.

Thanks also to Daniel from Fulton Swim School for enabling us to offer swimming lessons in the pool over the school holidays.

We’d also like to acknowledge the contribution of Tony Gleeson, Mel Cleave and Anne-Marie Cooper who are leaving the pool committee after many years’ service.  Their significant contribution to the day-to-day running and ongoing improvements made to the pool over the years is greatly appreciated.  The pool committee is now in the safe hands of Richard Sumner.

Finally, if you purchased a tag this year it will be deactivated over the winter but hold onto it and you will be able to have it re-activated next year.  We’ll send information out about how you can do this towards the end of the year.

Thanks for your support, see you next summer.

Health and safety and the Clevedon- Kawakawa Bay Road school gate:

Please note that as of Monday 13th March the back gate down beside the dental clinic will be locked at 9 10am and  will remain locked until 2.50pm daily. If you use that gate to drop off or pick up your children you will need to take note of these times and use the front entrance when the gate is locked.

Why have we done this?

We have a significant number of adults and teenagers accessing the school during the school day through this gate and it is becoming a health and safety issue for all children and staff who work here. We still have many parents who are not signing in at the school office when they are on site during the school day.

We ask that you please work with us to ensure the continued safety of our staff and students.
