Swimming Gala v Royal Russell – Tuesday 27th February 2024

27.2.24 Yr 3 - 6 Swimming Gala v Royal Russell

36 children from years 3, 4, 5 & 6 took part in a gala at Royal Russell School, South Croydon and for several children it was their first gala.

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 relays were next, freestyle and medley. Again, there were some nail biting finishes. For the first time we finished with a squadron relay, 2 girls and boys from each year group.

Also, a big thank you to several boys who had to swim up 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.

I am very grateful to Mrs Cox and Mrs Gorman for supporting me on poolside, without you both, the galas would be difficult to attend.

Overall win for Royal Russell by 27 points.

Mrs Michelle Evans

Swimming Teacher
