Those of you who have been along Ballarat Road recently will have noticed that the construction of the Goodfellow Aquatic Centre is nearing completion. The carpark has now been laid out and the interior close to 90% completed. We are well on our way to our planned opening in mid July.
Last week we made a further two giant steps towards a successful launch of the Aquatic centre with the appointment of our Aquatics centre Manager (Mark Bluschke) and the signing of a 3 year contract with H20 Swimming to deliver Learn to swim programs outside of school hours. We are delighted with both of these announcements and look forward to productive partnerships with both Mark and H20.
Our PE staff are busy putting together a timetable for student use of the Aquatic centre and this information will be shared with relevant classes in the coming weeks. Our Junior School swim program will be our first priority for term 3 along with relevant Senior School Units. Our PE department are also developing water specific units to roll out for Senior School students in 2017.
Enrolment information for H20 Learn to Swim classes is now available on the H20 website: http://www.h2oswimming.com.au/-new–kardinia-enquiries-assessments-enrolments.html and will also be linked through KIConline and our website in the coming weeks.
Our official Opening Ceremony for the Aquatic Centre will take place in August when our Board Chairman, Mr. Katsumata, is with us. Details regarding this ceremony will be shared via KIConline early in term 3.
Have a great week!
