New Waiheke Swimming Pool – Where Are We?

New Waiheke Community Pool

The Te Huruhi Community Pool is a collaboration between the Waiheke Pool Society, Te Huruhi Primary School and Swimgym – and of course, you, the community.

Together we are excited to be taking some steps towards an improved facility for the community. As you may know, our goal is a year-round heated indoor facility on Waiheke Island for the benefit of all sectors of the community.

Concept Plan – Te Huruhi Community Pool

New Waiheke Community Pool 3D

The Waiheke Community Pool Incorporated (Pool Society) would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated in the recent survey conducted for the pool project. We had 635 responses and of these 88% were in favour of the plan.

It was great to see many of you recognising this plan as a feasible step for the Waiheke community given our population size the costs associated with a facility for the island. Whilst we recognise it would be great to have a facility to match those of Auckland city we feel the proposed project can offer a pool sufficient to suit the needs of our community.

There were some valuable suggestions that came through the survey that we will take on board in the planning of the facility. We have been fortunate to have received a grant from the Local Board towards the project that will kick start us into action. These funds are vital to help us get underway.

What’s next? We need to expand on our concept plans with some more detailed designs which will assist us in costing up the project. A project manager will also likely be employed to run the project. Then it comes down to fully funding the project.

The Pool Society are looking for support to help make this dream a reality so we would welcome any ideas and assistance to help get it off the ground. We don’t want to lose momentum so we will be doing what we can to keep the dream alive and get the island a new pool facility.

In conjunction with the Te Huruhi School Board, Waiheke Local Board and the community, we are confident we can make this happen.

Water Safety vs Learn to Swim

Waiheke Islanders are very lucky to be offered the Auckland-wide John Walker Find Your Field of Dreams lessons right here on the island.

It’s a programme designed around water safety and ensuring that over the course of their primary school years, our children have enough training to keep themselves safe in water (eg float) and can swim short distances for help.

It’s possible we’re overprotective, but at the Te Huruhi Community Pool we are of the opinion that being on the island, we’d like our students to have every possible opportunity to learn. We want them to be safe and confident in the water (given we are surrounded by it!) and so have made sure that we still make available the additional holiday, after-school and weekend lessons we’ve been teaching over the last five years. 

The Learn to Swim classes are run with a lower teacher to child ratio, ensuring that your child gets all the attention they need, in order to progress.

Being able to do both sets of classes will accelerate your child’s learnings and help them reach their full potential as a swimmer.

We hope that we will be able to work with your child both in-school and outside of school hours.

Confirmation of Auckland City Council funding of $1.6 million towards Pool

Confirmation of Auckland City Council funding of $1.6 million towards the development of the $5 million project over the 2006/2007 and 2007/2008 financial years. This funding was confirmed at the November 2005 meeting of the Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee and subject to a number of matters including that the Committee secure financial support from the Ministry of Education. Funding was not forthcoming from the Ministry therefore the
project was not progressed further.
