Boksburg schools

The state high school and Martin OPrimary are the only schools with functioning outdoor swimming pools. Although many schools do participate in inter-school galas, their swimmers train in municipal or private facilities. 

The two private schools have combined their resources to create a fantastic outdoor facility.
