The existing 25m outdoor pool and associated buildings will be out of action as soon as the builders arrive on site. This means that there will be no swimming, diving or water polo on site until the new facility is completed in 2022.
This is an ambitious project, seeking to bring together the tennis courts, gymnasium, main oval and new Aquatic Centre together into a single interconnected precinct. Because of this, there will be times when access to these existing facilities may be more difficult than it currently is. Once a builder has been appointed we will know more, but our current thinking is that we will still have use of the courts and the gymnasium but to access them we may need to ‘go the long way’.
Some work will be done on the south east side of the gymnasium, but we will be asking the builders to schedule the bulk of this work during school holidays so as to cause the least disruption. We anticipate some of the main oval will fall within the builder’s compound and this may impact the School’s use. If some of the main oval is out of action, then more games and training will have to run on the School’s other oval – Mouleric. Thankfully we have more than one oval.
