Years of hard work and persistence have paid off for Principal Ken Langford-Smith and the kids of Yipirinya School.
For years Ken has insisted in showing the future pool on all the school masterplan but we never thought it would be a reality. Today the pool was opened to the kids just in time to celebrate before the christmas school holidays. The pool adds to the sports amenities at the school, but will also be used as an incentive and reward for school attendance in the line of the “yes school, yes pool” program which has been successfully implemented in many remote communities.
SDA project managed the design and construction of the pool.
