On Wednesday 25 April, Oakland’s School took part in the Bancroft’s School Swimming Gala. A strong group of pupils took part which comprised of Hannah, Annabel and Lucy from Year 6, Emmy and Isaac in Year 5, Amber and Jeyda in Year 4 and Annabella and Riana in Year 3.
In an event full of very strong schools, Oaklands’ swimmers performed exceptionally with all pupils finishing in 1st or 2nd in their heats. Hannah qualified for the 50M freestyle final and finished in a very respectable 3rd place with a time of 38.47.
All the pupils competed in both the freestyle and medley relays producing some very promising displays. The Year 3/4 team qualified for the final and managed to come in in 4th place.
Overall the school finished in 7th place out of 10 schools, but were only 4 points behind the 5th place team, showing just how close the competition was! The children should be proud of their efforts.
Well done Oaklands!
