Stu­dent board takes a plunge

Swim-in movie night idea a first

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - By BROOKE GAR­DINER

It couldn’t be much more fright­en­ing – a swim-in night screen­ing of one of the scari­est movies of all time, com­plete with in­flat­able sharks. With few events on the Win­ter Fes­ti­val pro­gramme for teens, a group of Wakatipu High pupils got to­gether with Lakes Leisure staff to come up with a teen-only event. The pupils, who are also a stu­dent board con­sult­ing reg­u­larly with Lakes Leisure, are ex­cited about the Fright Night screen­ing and hope the first won’t be the last. Lakes Leisure com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Rachelle Greene said swimin movie nights had been on the cards for a while but un­til a stu­dent board was formed it was not con­fi­dent the idea would be worth while. School iden­ti­fi­ca­tion would be re­quired and the event was strictly limited to those aged 13 to 18. The stu­dent board had also been in­volved in es­tab­lish­ing af­ter-school fit­ness classes for high school pupils at Lakes Leisure. The classes. from 4pm till 6pm, cost $5 for non-mem­bers and are free for mem­bers.
