Greetings to our Marist Old Boys
We’re delighted to announce the new Swimming Pool and Water Sport Complex is well underway at Marist College Ashgrove. It will be ready for Summer 2015/2016.
After extensive demolition of the old structure, the new foundations are firmly in place and the first concrete for the pool shell was poured over a week ago. A second concrete pour will take place in the school holidays (scheduled for 7 July). The slab for the change rooms is complete and the blockwork is currently underway. We’ll then start construction of the grandstand and sports training facilities for the rest of the pool complex.
This heated, Olympic-size, 10-lane pool with night lighting will greatly increase year-round training for all College students as well as our extremely successful swimming squad. The state-of-the-art facility supports full-size, men’s water polo, triathlon, water fitness, lifesaving training and competition plus other activities. Please see the latest DIVE IN BROCHURE for more details.
There are still opportunities available to leave your own or your family’s legacy if you are interested in becoming a Pool Patron or taking out Naming Rights of the buildings. We need support to achieve our vision and raise at least $500,000 to supplement the College’s financing of this $5.5 million complex. With the end of the financial year fast approaching on 30 June, we invite you to consider if you’re able to help us complete these exceptional facilities. All contributions are welcome and donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
Thank you for your vital support of the College as we continue to provide world-class facilities for future generations of Marist boys.
Peter McLoughlin (Headmaster, Marist College Ashgrove) and Chris Shay (Chairman, Marist Foundation)
