Te Huruhi Community Swimming Pool is now open for the 2020/21 Season!
With the Summer School Holidays fast approaching, we are happy to announce our Community Pool will be OPEN daily from December 17th, 12noon – 4pm. The only days we will be Closed is Christmas Day, Boxing Day and January 1st. Please check our Face Book Page for any last minute closure announcements – which will be mainly due to weather.
Our heated pool is LOCATED at Te Huruhi Primary School – 11 Donald Bruce Road, Surfdale, Waiheke Island.
Currently Te Huruhi Primary School is in the final stages of it’s new build! This said – there are a few diggers still moving around meaning our entrance is not 100% complete. For now, please enter the school from the main car park and follow the blue arrows to the pool entrance.
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
The Te Huruhi Community Pool is open to the public for fun, fitness and swimming lessons. In addition, lessons are available to all school children on the island through a free program called Find Your Field of Dreams.
The Te Huruhi Community Pool is a collaboration between the Waiheke Pool Society, Te Huruhi Primary School, Swimgym – and of course, you – the community.
“Heated by You” was the fundraising campaign that raised sufficient funds in 2018 to heat the pool to an extent that children and fully grown adults no longer turned blue while in the water. The pool today is typically a balmy 28 degrees celsius since installation of the pool covers and solar pump. The newest equipment – the heat pump – was put through its paces as the temperatures dropped through the autumn of 2019, and passed with flying colours.
The History and Purpose of the Waiheke Pool Society is also available for reading. We always welcome new members to our Society, so please do check us out!
