SCHOOL POOL ISSUES
A question mark still hangs over the opening date for Te Huruhi Primary School pool this summer. Principal Adams Cels said repairs on the pool have yet to be completed, so the date that swimming lessons can begin will depend on the weather being dry enough for the work to go ahead. The school pool, which is the only public pool on the island, has been closed since April 2015. Cracks in the outdoor pool were unable to be repaired last summer, due to difficulties finding a contractor and wet weather delaying the work.
