Community Update - Monday 1 June 2020

It’s really exciting, and I can’t wait until the Aquatic Centre refurbishment is complete, so we can show you everything that has been done. We’ve added a few pictures in this week’s newsletter.

Later this week I should have a final date from the builders. Once we have that, I’ll be sitting down with all the staff the week after to finalise the plan for reopen (which will be dependent on what level we’re in). We’re all itching to get back to what we love doing.

The Barker Cup has been great for the little ones. Great to see so many of the children running around and having fun.

Community Update - Tuesday 12 May 2020

Whilst the Federal and NSW Governments continue to review and ease some restrictions, the Barker Foundation Aquatics Centre and the Hornsby Council pool, remain closed as per the current health guidelines. The Barker Foundation Aquatic Centre falls under Indoor Recreational Facilities and therefore must remain closed until further advice from the Government.  We will continue to communicate all updates to our customers by email in regard to any changes to restrictions.

During this period of closure, the School has brought forward required maintenance works in the Barker Foundation Aquatic Centre.  The ceilings have been repainted and the change rooms in the Centre have been  stripped and retiled.  Undertaking this maintenance work at this time will mean that the Centre will not need to close again at a later date and will therefore limit any further disruptions to our community.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Barker Foundation Aquatic Centre in what we hope will not be a too distant future.

Community Update - Monday 23 March 2020

The Aquatic Centre is currently closed in light of the announcement by the Federal Government, and NSW Premier on Monday 23 March, regarding the shutdown of non-essential services in NSW.

Please note, due to the high volume of enquiries our response time may be longer than usual. Our staff will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible.

We will continue to communicate all updates to our customers by email as more information comes to hand.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your support and patience during this time.
