It is with great sadness that Gym Kids needs to advise that the Leys Institute Library and Gymnasium has been closed by the council for the foreseeable future.
The grand old ladies’ bones are tired and with a big shake she will crumble.
Gym Kids has been very proud to have continued the tradition of Gymnastics at the Leys Institute for the past seven years. It has come as a huge shock right on Christmas that the council has made this decision without any forewarning.
We do however understand that now the building has been demeaned an earthquake risk it is not safe for the Leys Institute to stay open.
We are however determined to continue providing gymnastics to the Ponsonby Community. As such we have work with Auckland council, Ponsonby Community centre and several private providers to find alternative venues for our classes in the central Auckland area.
Ponsonby Holiday programme
With the great support of the Ponsonby Community centre we have managed to secure the St Stephens Church Hall in Jervois Road for our holiday programme. The hall has an indoor and outdoor space which will be a great addition to our summer programme. The programme will be running from 13-16, 20-23 and 28-30 January.
