Bomaderry pool faces deluge of school swimming carnivals

THE Bomaderry Aquatic Centre is set for one of its busiest school swimming carnival programs ever.

The Bomaderry centre will be particularly busy because the Nowra Pool is out of action while it is redeveloped.

The carnival season starts on Thursday, January 30 and there is a school carnival each week day until Thursday, March 6.

Bomaderry Aquatic Centre manager Shalissa Walter said the facility was ready to face this busy period.

Ms Walter, who has been at the pool for two years, said this was the busiest school carnival program she had ever faced.

“We have moved things around to fit in with everyone,” she said.

The centre’s entrance has been modified to ensure people can get in and out with ease.

Ms Walter said the regular pool users should not be disadvantaged.

“There has been lots of notice about what is coming up at the pool,” she said.

Extra staff will also be on duty.

Most carnivals start between 8 and 9am and finish by 4pm at the latest.

However, on Tuesday, February 11 the carnival program will finish at 4.30pm as two carnivals (Culburra Public and Nowra High schools) will be held on the same day.

Several representative carnivals are also part of the busy schedule.
