Despite only being back in the pool for a few weeks, the House galas have been a huge success! It has been a fantastic opportunity for the children to showcase their abilities in the pool. Years 3-6 had the chance to participate in a freestyle and backstroke relay with some Individual Medley events taking place as an addition. We had countless relays, neck and neck, resulting in burst ear drums and no voices as staff and children alike roared endlessly in support of their Houses.

Results were close, Year 4 and 5 galas had a mere 1 point separating first and second place! After the nail biting events we could not be prouder of the prep children for their participation and performance across all House galas. They demonstrated their Blue Coat values with the highest admiration in their cheerful perseverance and respect for one another – the sportsmanship was commendable as support both in House and for one-another was noticeable in each event. Beaming with pride we eagerly await the announcement of the overall House winners on the final day of term!
