Community laps up Subiaco school pool
THROUGH the hard work of pool manager Sandy Ruprecht and volunteers, the Subiaco Primary School pool has remained open to the community for 30 years.
The pool is run by the Subiaco Primary P&C in partnership with the City of Subiaco and Royal Life Saving Society (WA).
James Mactier from the P&C pool committee said Sandy, who recently retired from her post, was a stalwart of the pool and community.
“Sandy was the pool manager and principal lifeguard for most of that time and it is largely through her efforts and others like former P&C president Brian Swain and other volunteers and the valuable support of our partners that the pool has remained open to the community,” Mr Mactier said.
The pool was opened for the season at its annual Splashdance in November.
Subiaco resident Adrian Barich, whose children attend the school, said the pool at Subiaco PS was open to everyone, not just families from the school.
"It’s arguably the best value pool in Perth and also probably the safest due to our new partnership with the Royal Life Saving Society of WA,” Mr Barich said. “I’d encourage any family that lives within 20km of Subiaco to take advantage of this great local resource.”
The pool is open to members seven days a week from December to March. Call Tracy (0412 748 865) or visit http://subiaco ps.wa.edu.au/pool.
The November Splashdance was a great success.
