Swimming Gala

Yesterday a team of swimmers attended the annual swimming Gala at Test Valley. The event was put in jeopardy a number of times as school after school in the cluster pulled out - but us, Kings Somborne and West Tytherley made the event a success.

It was a lovely warm sunny afternoon and the outdoor HEATED pool made for a really great final event of the year. The children from Lockerley did themselves and us proud swimming race after race in quick succession competing in widths and lengths of a variety of strokes from font crawl to breaststroke to backstroke and team relays.

We had a number of first places with our worst position only ever being 3rd! Overall we came 2nd which was a brilliant result especially considering there were 3 events that we didn't enter.

I was very impressed with all the children and the progress that some of the children have madeĀ over the 2 years in their swimming has been outstanding.

A splashy well done to Georgina, Callum, Sam, Annabel, Chloe, Alice, Ben K, Ben W, Lucy M, Lucy S, Maisie, Tiffany, Danielle, Sophie and Mark.
