First Swimming Gala of the season and a win – 12th October 2023

32 children from years 3, 4, 5 & 6 took part in a gala at Royal Russell School, South Croydon.  8 children from each year group.

The gala started with the individual freestyle races, followed by backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.  There were some outstanding swims from our children which led to many exciting close races. 

The gala finished with the front crawl and medley relays. Again, there were some nail biting finishes.

Also, a big thank to several boys who had to swim up a few year groups, 

Mrs Cox and I are so proud of you all, well done!

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and siblings who came to cheer the team on, we really appreciate your continued support.
