Pool Manager Stephen Waterman wanted to help the kids gets excited about being back at school, so he made a night of it, with the kids not only enjoying the pool inflatables during the afternoon but it was all followed dinner and a disco at the recreation shed!

Steve says it was all made possible thanks to a community effort. “A big thanks to Shonece and Paul from the Gija Youth team who helped supervise. We had a great turnout, with over 30 kids attending."

"It was an awesome day loaded with lots of fun. The kids loved the inflatables, and it was great to see the bigger kids assisting the little ones so they could have a go as well!"

The Warmun Remote Pool has had an amazing season, with more than 5,500 visitations to the pool by local community members for the season so far. Considering that the town’s population is only around 200 people, it’s clear that the pool is an extremely popular place for the locals to spend time!An aboriginal boy on a leaf inflatable in the pool
