Friendly Swimming Gala away at Caterham School – Tuesday 21st November 2023

Yrs 3 - 6 Friendly gala Caterham School

31 children from years 3, 4, 5 & 6 took part in a gala today, Tuesday 21st November 2023 at Caterham School, for some it was their first experience of an away swimming gala. 

The gala started with the individual races, backstroke, breaststroke, frontcrawl, and butterfly. There were some very tight finishes and excellent swims from all of the children. Next, the children swam in two relays: medley and freestyle, both girls and boys from each year group swimming against each other. A big thank you to some of the children who swam up for their age and stepped into to swim at very short notice.

The scores were announced. OGS scored 251 and Caterham won with a score of 269 – a very close result.

Very well done to the whole swimming team and thank to the parents who helped with the transportation to the gala and the large amount of parents cheering and lastly a massive thank you to both Mrs Cox and Mrs Gorman for helping me on poolside.
