South East Schools Divisional Swimming Gala – 11th May 2024

On Saturday 11th May, 4 children (Scarlett K, Daniel H, Amaaya P, Jude M) took part in the South East Schools Divisional Relay Finals at Guildford Spectrum. This event was contested by schools that had qualified from the following counties: Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, the Channel Isles, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, Sussex and Surrey.

We got off to a good start in the very first event, the Small Schools 4 x 25m Freestyle Relay, where we came fourth in our heat and qualified with a PB for the final. The events moved quickly and we were soon swimming in the final. We were up against some very strong teams and came in with a time of 1:15.83.

After the excitement of the Freestyle Relay, we were then lined up for the heats of the Small Schools 4 x25m Medley Relay. We came 3rd in our heat with a time of 1.23.99 qualifying sixth overall.

Everyone swam really well and we fought hard, but missed out on a chance to represent the South East in the National English Schools final in Sheffield in June.

Well done to all our swimmers, I am super proud of you all and a big thank you to the parents for supporting the team.

Mrs M Evans, Swimming Coach
