A bit of history about our pool.
Coorparoo was one of the first State schools to acquire a swimming pool. It was installed in 1928.
As the school’s population continued to grow, on 19 October 2003, the then Minister for Education, Ms Anna Bligh, officially opened the new 25m Swimming Pool Complex. The Pool complex includes a viewing stand, amenities block and is gas-heated for year-round use.
In 2019 the school undertook significant upgrades to the pool converting it to a salt system refurbishing the paint and tiles, installing a new wet deck system and upgrading the old concrete blocks to professional starting blocks. The school also upgraded the heating systems to help provide opportunities year round for our students.
Our P&C Swim club has made significant contributions to our facilities including shade areas replacement and providing solar heating to supplement the gas heaters. This partnership has provided an opportunity for the pool t be a hub for the local community.
