Prep Swimming Gala

Yesterday saw an incredibly exciting Swimming Gala at the pool, with over 100 races in the space of just two hours – a feat of organisation as well as swimming! After an afternoon of hard swimming Belgrave house emerged victorious, adding the Prep Swimming Cup to the Pre Prep Swimming Cup they won before half term. The win moves them into 2nd place in the House Cup Table with 3, although they are still 3 behind leaders Chester, who have 6.

 

Congratulations go particularly to Pietro and Harry in Year 5, Henry in Year 4 and Lars in Year 2, who all broke School records. Belgrave House cemented their dominance by taking the School record in the 10 length relay, breaking the 3 minute barrier.

 

Special thanks go to all the PTA parents who helped organise the event, all the staff, swimming coaches and pupils, and particularly to Mr Pennington, for whom this was his last Gala before he signs off at Easter, and somehow ended up in the pool….!
