POOLZ in Schools
The Feb 22 Earthquake effectively destroyed learn-to-swim facilities for 32 schools in the eastern suburbs of Christchurch.
This included the major loss of QEII pools which many schools used. Sport Canterbury has organized temporary facilities, in the form of three portable pools, funded instructors and transport to the pools, and generally organized a great program.
Rotary was one of three funding benefactors and has contributed $85,000. Rotarians have also helped to erect the pools when they became available.
