On Thursday 17th November our Year 5 and 6 teams travelled to Truro to swim against Truro Prep and Devoran Schools in a friendly gala. The level of competition was really good as we often meet these schools at the Cornwall Games Gala finals. Our swimmers performed really well on the day and were a credit to the school. After 36 races, we achieved 7 x 1sts, 15 x 2nd’s and 14 x 3rd’. When all of the points were added up we finished second overall. This gala gives us a really good idea where we are in terms of our progress towards the St.Austell Gala and the Cornwall Games and our swimmers are certainly on track. Many thanks to Mrs.Gray, Helen Welland, Colin Williams and Matt Nile for their help on poolside.
Team: George, Adrian, Stanley, Jake, Lizzy, Jess, Eva, Leonne, Kieran, George, Owain, Finlay, Mea, Holly, Kelsey, Tilly.
The following Thursday (24th November) the Year 3 and 4 teams also went to Truro to swim against Truro Prep. We were really up against it on the day as Truro Prep had some very impressive Truro City swimmers, we finished second at the end of the twenty eight races but our children stuck at it and gained some valuable experience. For many of our team it was their first ever gala and they deserve great credit for their efforts. Many thanks to Mrs.Meens, Mrs.Gray and Helen Welland for their help on poolside and to those parents who travelled to Truro to support the team.
Team: Ellie, Lily, Olivia, Chelsea, Max, Ethan, Henry, Jai, Luke, Abi, Grace, Daisy, Isabelle, Kira, Jayden, Ethan, Tobi, Toby.
