Records splashed at Junior School swimming galas

After the Half Term break, pupils from Years 3 - 6 came back to school feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to compete in the annual inter-house swimming galas which have taken place over the past few weeks. 

Although the first swimming gala took place under some unexpected June showers, by the end of the galas there was finally glorious sun shining down on the swimmers, and as ever, the boys and girls showed great spirit and sportsmanship as they tried to win the House shield.

Pupils competed in frontcrawl, breakstroke, backstroke and even butterfly in some cases, as thrilled parents watched and cheered their children on from the sidelines. There were some very close finishes, new records smashed and some excellent individual and relay performances throughout all year groups.

Well done to all the winners of their respective events and well done to all those who took part and represented their house.
