Splash into pool party hol­i­day fun

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS -

AS THE weather heats up, Stanthorpe Pool staff are get­ting ready to cel­e­brate the be­gin­ning of the swim­ming sea­son with a pool party.

The pool will be open for a closed event for Year 9 and 10 stu­dents this Satur­day from 5pm to 7pm.

South­ern Downs Mayor Tracy Do­bie said the open­ing of the lo­cal pools was al­ways an ex­cit­ing oc­ca­sion. “It’s go­ing to be so much fun this year with the par­ties that have been or­gan­ised,” Cr Do­bie said.

“The pool par­ties are a fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive de­vised by our South­ern Downs Youth Coun­cil over their last few meet­ings.

“It’s been great to watch them work to­gether with coun­cil’s com­mu­nity ser­vices and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment teams to bring the idea to life.”

En­try is free, but reg­is­tra­tion is es­sen­tial at stan­thor­pet­ick­ets.com.au.

The pool will be decked out with in­flat­a­bles and juke­boxes will add to the party at­mos­phere, with life­guards on hand.

Stu­dent ID is re­quired for those at­tend­ing and food and drink will also be avail­able. The event is strictly drug and al­co­hol free.
