On Saturday 9th March, two year 6 teams took part in “It’s A Fish Out” a life saving competition for primary schools in Surrey held at Dorking Leisure Centre.

Connie, Millie, Maggie & Elissa were in one team and Scarlett, Katie, Surina & Vincent were in the other. 

The activities consisted of rope throwing, straddle entries, a relay with head up swimming, ball throwing to a person in the water, questions on water safety, an under water baton relay, treading water, sculling and lifting a brick out of the water by surface diving.

All of the children thoroughly enjoyed this beneficial experience and they had lots of fun working in their teams together. 

24 teams took part from 12 schools – our A team came 5th and B team came 17th.

A very big thank you to Mr Burke and Mrs Cox for accompanying the teams around the pool, as I was asked again to be a judge at the event. And lastly a big thank you to the parents and siblings for supporting the children and coming to watch.
