Well done to our Swimming team who competed so well at the Primary Schools Swimming Gala at River Park Leisure Centre at the beginning of the month.
When the children arrived, they went straight to the hall for a land warm up and this gave us a chance to see just how many schools had entered the competition! There were 27 schools in total and the children were excited and keen to get started. They were also very excited to receive their bag of goodies, including a new pair of goggles and a Schools Gala t-shirt.
After the land warm up, the children headed to the pool to get ready for the competition to start. The girls managed to secure two final positions for each of their relays. The finals saw the girls come 5th in the mixed stroke final and 6th in the freestyle final. The boys were entered into the invitational relay and showed fantastic perseverance and determination to secure 1st place, bringing home a trophy! The whole team were incredibly supportive of one another and made sure they cheered and supported one another throughout the morning.
Thank you to Miss Barwick for her help and support during the trials and the gala!
