On Thursday 4th February our Year 5 and Year 6 swimming teams competed against six other St. Austell Area schools in the first round qualifier of the Cornwall Games. All of our teams swam well on the day and made it through to the next stage at Newquay on Friday 12th February. Our Year 6 boys finished first and the Year 5 girls finished equal first, whilst the Year 5 boys and Year 6 girls both finished second.
Our teams recorded;
10 x 1st places
8 x 2nd places
1 x 3rd place
1 x 4th place
Our teams were a credit to the school and now we look forward to competing against the winners of the Newquay area schools from which two schools will go forward to the Cornwall Games finals in July.
Many thanks to Helen Welland and Mrs.Meens for their help on poolside, to Mel Nile for helping walk the team up to Polkyth and the parents who cheered on the team.
