The JAGS Pool Then and Now: From Swimming to Dining in the Deep End!

Depending on when you studied at JAGS, the "Deep End" refers either to the far end of the pool once located in our main building, or the cafe where you grabbed lunch. Which is it for you?

As many of you know, the former pool site is as busy as ever, but now serves as our Dining Hall and Deep End Cafe.  Swimming remains an important part of life at JAGS, but today takes place at our Sports Centre, which is also open to the community after School hours. Whether you learned to dive, or learned to like school dinners in the JAGS 'Deep End', we'd love to hear your memories of the pool at JAGS, or stories of any JAGS changes that surprised you!

In the meantime, take a look at our pool "before and after" shots!
