Birkdale State School is very lucky to have its own pool for the students to use during PE lessons. Unfortunately our pool cover is in need of being replaced and without it the water temperature drops dramatically making it too cold for the students to swim right through the term. We would love to use the money to go towards replacing the cover so these important swimming lessons can continue for longer.

Lessons can happen and are more productive when water temp is maintained.

It is much needed and will be fantastic to help keep the pool a perfect swim temperature.

More swim time, more active kids! A great facility would be improved with new covers

I have seen other schools and organisations using the pool as well so a vote for Birkdale is a vote for the greater community. Learning to swim can save lives, a needed item for a deserving school 😊

All children in the school benefit from the jessinsxss they are run for free in PE time. We all have learn to swim classes after school which are affected by the pool temp, esp for little ones. A new cover would be a great asset.

In this day & age it is extremely important for kids to know how to swim. It is a necessary life skill. I am a parent who many years ago assisted in teaching the kids how to swim at this school.

Swimming lessons are essential for all children and the more pool time they can get the better for everyone. Much needed item for BSS.

The pool cover helps to keep the pool warm so the kids get a longer period to practice their swimming and not to mention would help keep the ducks out of the pool.

Swimming is such an important skill for our kids to have - we need to give them every chance to learn, and having a new cover equals warmer water equals more swimming time.

The Birkdale pool needs a new cover. It would be such a benefit, not just for BSS, but also to the swimming squad, the community. #votebss #thanksfreedomproperty

Swimming lessons are a necessity for our kids. When the pool temperature drops, lessons are cancelled because it's just too cold for the kids. The pool cover helps to maintain a good swimming temperature so that all kids can enjoy and participate in their lessons. A new pool cover is a necessity.

So many kids use this pool and the cover keeps it a little warmer and keeps it cleaner as well .
