On Monday 15 October, pupils from Years 4-6 took part in the ISA London North Swim Gala. On a wet and cold morning, the pupils arrived very early and still sleepy ready for the journey to Barnet Copthall Swimming Pool in Hertfordshire. There were some very strong schools in attendance and our children were focused and ready to swim their 50M races, accompanied by some nerves of course. Everyone did amazingly well considering some of them haven’t even swum this year and it was their first time representing the school.
There were some really close finishes with a lot of the pupils finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in their heats. Medals were awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes across 2 heats and based on the 3 quickest times, so we were up against 15 other schools making it a real challenge to get that medal. Annabella and Alex both managed to produce fantastic performances and were awarded with 2nd place in their event.
Congratulations to Annabella and Konstantin who have both been selected to take part in the ISA National championships representing London North on the Front Crawl Relay at the Olympic Park in Stratford.
Well done to everyone!
