Swimming Pool Re-Opens

15 October 2019

Staff and students at St Ignatius College are celebrating the opening of its newly refurbished swimming pool this week. After previously having had huge problems with the pipework which dates back to the 1960s the 25m indoor swimming pool has under gone an extensive refurbishment over the past few months and now offers students a modern and sleek swimming environment to perfect their skills in the water. Coupled with brand new changing rooms with all mod cons, this is a wonderful addition to the school and wider community.

Mary O’Keeffe, Headteacher, said, “Our students have access to some superb facilities now including this beautiful, heated indoor swimming pool. Swimming is such an important skill for our young people to learn not only for their own enjoyment and physical health but also to keep themselves and others safe in and around the water. I am proud that our students will have swimming back on their regular time table and that we are now able to welcome a number of swimming groups from the wider community. I am so grateful to the Diocese and our Trustees who funded these major works. This time last year we were at a loss as to how to manage the situation.” The swimming pool has been refurbished by Hydrospec Swimming Pool Engineers who handed over the site earlier this week.
