Inter-School Swimming Gala
Avalon School took part in the Inter-School Swimming Gala at Europa Pools, Birkenhead
Some of our Year 3, 5 and 6 children took part in an Inter-School Swimming Gala at Europa Pools in Birkenhead on Tuesday 16th May 2017.
Not having a full squard, because the Year 4 children were away on a residential, added pressure as the children had to enter more than one race especially our Year 3 children who swam for Year 3 and Year 4.
Even with the added pressure the children performed incrediably well and were a credit to the school. For some this had been their first real experience of school competition at a swimming gala.
VV in Year 3, swam in 9 races as the only girls in Years 3 and 4. She came joint 1st in the Year 3 Girls Breaststroke and 2nd in the Year 3 Girls Freestyle.
CS in Year 3 came 2nd in the Year 3 Boys Breaststroke.
SA in Year 6 came 2nd in the Year 6 Boys Breaststroke.
NH in Year 6 came 2nd in the Year 6 Girls Breaststroke.
OL in Year 6 came 2nd in the Year 6 Boys Backstroke and Freestyle.
It was a very enjoyable morning for the children and they all behaved impeccably.
Well done to everyone who took part.
