Swimming Gala 2017

We were all very proud this week as our team of swimmers won the Small Schools’ trophy at the annual Swimming Gala in Midsomer Norton. Mrs Haskins and I accompanied the team, who not only behaved impeccably all afternoon, but also tried their very hardest in every race. We were up against seven other small schools, but took the lead right from the first race and maintained it throughout the event, competing in a variety of events – freestyle, back stroke, breast stroke, butterfly and relays. Congratulations to all the team who came along – Lara, Mya, Ruby, Ella, Sophie, Sam, Billy, Lachie and Teo. A fantastic triumph for the team and the school!
