Swimming Gala

Swimming Gala



On Monday 25th June, Year three and four took part in the Swimming Gala at the Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham.

Every pupil in the class, who could swim, took part.

There were four Boys’ races and four Girls’ races in the 25m pool; three Boys’ and three Girls’ races in the 15m pool and a four leg relay race in each pool.

Most of the pupils raced in two events to make sure we had a representative in every event. The attitude of each and every pupil was excellent. Everybody tried their very best and they all swam as fast as they possibly could.



Seven out of our twelve participants made it through to the finals of their race by being one of the fastest six out of fifteen competitors in each event. This is the most pupils that we have had in the finals for many years of participating in the Gala. We even had a relay team in the final event!

We managed to win a Bronze medal and achieved five fourth places!  

We are all very proud of our swimmers who represented their school so well.
