Our school is one of the lucky few in Wellington to still have its own outdoor swimming pool, which is open during Terms 1 and 4. With a heat pump in operation we will have a lovely warm pool (26 degrees).
It is also available for Kilbirnie and Hataitai residents to use outside school hours by purchasing a key from the office which is returned at the end of each season. Pool keys are now on sale for the summer season and available from Liz in the office. They cost $70 for the season with a $20 refund once the key has been returned. Key holders are also asked to sign a Kilbirnie School Pool User’s Code. This details conditions of use, particularly relating to supervision and health/safety issues. Only key holders are allowed to use the pool. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Our pool is maintained by a dedicated Kilbirnie School Pool Committee of parents who manage the pool on a rostered basis. This mainly involves unlocking in the weekend/holiday mornings and locking up at 8pm as well as checking on toilet paper supplies and so on. Please contact the school if you would be happy to assist and we can pass the information on to the committee.
