This week saw Pre-Prep displaying their swimming skills in their exciting and friendly Galas. These Galas are an excellent opportunity for our swimmers to develop their racing skills and enjoy a swimming competition.

On Tuesday, Year 2 took to the pool and showed an impressive amount of skill as they swam heats in both freestyle and backstroke. All children have progressed hugely since their Gala in Year 1 and many presented techniques that were way beyond their years. All of the children did their best and made personal achievements. We had some fantastic swims throughout the event and the results are as follows:

1) Isabel P Year 2 Champion
2) Mia S
3) Rosie M

On Thursday, it was Year 1’s turn to showcase their swimming skills in their first Gala. With a mixture of nerves and excitement, all of the children displayed how confident they have become with both front crawl and backstroke. It was lovely to see big smiles on everyone’s faces as they completed their water skills display at the end of the Gala.

A special mention to all of the parents who came to spectate. Your support is highly appreciated!

Well done Year 1 and Year 2, you should be very proud of your achievements.
