Com­mu­nity laps up Su­bi­aco school pool

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
