OHINEWAI SCHOOL

With our help Ohinewai School pool underwent a sand blast, filter maintenance and a complete repaint and is now open for the kids to enjoy this summer. “The value of our school pool cannot be measured because we cannot measure the value of a person’s life - every single student that learns how to swim is in a position to, not only save their own lives, but potentially the lives of many others.” Nesan Govender, Principal
