On Friday 6th June to take part in the Annual Schools’ Swimming Gala Mrs Percy took a group of children to River Park Leisure Centre. There were 24 other schools taking part and lots of children attended in what turned out to be a very successful but hot morning.
The children took part in six races: the front crawl and mixed relay races; culminating in a float race. Prior to the event the children completed swimming trials and practise sessions which was very kindly supported by expert coaching from Winchester City Penguins Swimming Club.
We were very pleased to be awarded a 2nd place in the boys’ invitational float race and we just missed out on winning a trophy by 2 seconds. There was also some amazing individual times set by the children during the session.
Well done to the swim team they all worked very hard and had lots of fun.
Swim Team: Cara Percy, Alysia Gardiner, Cerys Long, Tissy Dennis, Orla Allan, Lucy Gardiner, James Allen, Patrick Berry-Green, Andy Lunniss, Mack Evison and Oliver Lucas.
