16 of our children took part in the annual swimming gala at the Abbey Stadium Sports Centre in Redditch. It was a great occasion with five different schools participating and almost 100 children, not to mention nearly 200 spectators! We started well with three 2nd place finishes in a row from Holly, Alex and Jess. After that though we found it tough going – the standard was extremely high. We kept working hard and did our best throughout. In the end we managed two 1st places through Jess and Ewelina. Every child earned themselves a medal and had a fantastic time, being cheered on by the crowd and making friends with children from other schools. Our laces for this event go to Holly, Ewelina and Sanvir for their excellent attitude, giving everything a go, and encouraging others too. Well done to all involved and thank you so much to all the supporters who came along – it was a truly memorable evening!
