Our heated swimming pool is a fabulous asset for both the College and the community. Lavers Hill College is the only school in the district to have its own indoor pool.
The facility is a legacy of Cliffy Young’s famous win in the 1983 Ultra-marathon and its operation is overseen by the Pool & Gym Committee.
In-school swimming lessons
Students in Kindergarten and Primary have regular swimming lessons, and work towards certificates in the Royal Life Saving ‘Swim and Survive’ program.
Members of staff – Michelle Ferrari, Georgina Sheens & Bec McKenzie – have AUSTSWIM accreditation as well as pool lifeguard qualifications, to take these classes. Qualifications are updated annually.
Community use of the pool
When not in use by the College, the pool is available for use by the community – as long as you obtain a pool membership.
