Swimming Pool

Wakefield School and Community Swimming Pool Incorporated Society

In 1997 after community fundraising and funding from the Tasman District Council (TDC), Community Trust and the Lotteries Commission, the current swimming pools were constructed.   The pools were opened in December 1997.  In August 1998 a generous bequest was made by the Estate of David Crowe to roof and fully enclose the pool.  This was constructed in late 2001. 

This facility includes a main pool which is 25 metres by 8 metres, a toddler’s pool, changing facilities and toilets.  This facility is run by a Management Committee which includes community, TDC and Wakefield School Board of Trustee representatives.

For all pool inquiries please phone Alistair Kennard on 541 9102.

 

Foxhill Learning Centre - The School Library

Our up-to-date resources support the school curriculum, reflect our bi-cultural heritage, interests of the children and our diverse community, and extend knowledge beyond our own social and cultural environment.

The library is the hub of the school where children can read, play board, floor and card games, access computers, and relax in a safe environment.  Organised lunchtime activities include competitions and read-aloud stories.
