Monday 27 January saw the very first Oak-Tree Swimming Gala held at Loughton swimming pool and it was a great success. Pupils from Years 4-6 took part in various individual races and relays, ending with an exciting 12 team front crawl relay. The children were fantastic and competed in a very fair and enjoyable environment, watched by lots of proud parents which added to the atmosphere.
There were many outstanding performances and the whole Oaklands team did magnificently well, doing themselves and all the staff and pupils at Oaklands extremely proud.
The overall results were:
1st – Oaklands – 84 points
2nd – Coopersale – 65 points
3rd – Normanhurst – 54 points
4th – Braeside/Normanhurst – 37 points
