Warmun community enjoys movie night at local pool

17 October 2019

Families in Warmun had a great night at the pool recently, as the local police partnered with Royal Life Saving WA’s Remote Aboriginal Swimming Pool in the town to present a movie and swimming night!

Kids enjoying the pool at a movie night in WarmunAround 100 community members made their way to the pool to enjoy dinner and a family friendly movie, with a half time intermission giving the kids an opportunity to enjoy a swim and some pool games. Warmun Pool Manager Jamie O’Donohue says the night was a lot of fun for all! “We all enjoyed watching the movie Goosebumps Two, which was enthralling and got a few laughs – actually I’m not sure who enjoyed it more - the adults or the kids!”

Our remote pools, supported by the Department of Communities and BHP, have a dual purpose of giving locals an opportunity to learn vital swimming and water safety skills, while also building strong communities through events such as these which encourage positive community interaction and engagement.

Royal Life Saving WA would like to thank Warmun Police officers Peter and Paul who organised the night and ensured everything ran smoothly, along with Renee who sorted out the food and lifeguarding to keep the kids safe in the water!

We look forward to more community events like these as the pool season continues across the summer months.
