Winchester Swimming Gala – June 2024

At the beginning of June, St. Bede took part in the Winchester District Schools Swimming Gala at Winchester Sports Centre.  Over forty children put themselves forward to take part in trials, with eight making the final team.  Against seasoned club swimmers and private schools with impressive swimming facilities of their own, St. Bede were able to hold their own.


Both the boys and girls team put in performances they could be proud of, making the finals in both the ‘Freestyle’ and ‘Mixed’ events. The girls ended the day with two rosettes for their 6th place finishes and the boys won two of their own, placing 4th in the ‘Mixed’ and 3rd in the ‘Freestyle’. A really fantastic effort from everyone involved, great racing and faultless attitudes.


Well done all involved, a huge thank you to Ms Barwick and Mrs Quirk who led the team and to the Standens, a St Bede family, who donated swimming hats, which the team wore with pride!
