On Friday 22nd March St Augustine’s was represented by eight fantastic swimmers at the local authority annual swimming gala held at Glass Mill Leisure Centre.
Schools across the borough were ably represented by members of Years 5 and 6. Agata, Giorgia, Thomas and Martynas swam for year 5 with Kordi, Corey, Rejane and Emmanuel representing our year 6; each swimming two lengths each. With the added excitement of four children competing in a relay at the end of the event.
As the heat rose poolside, nerves began to jangle and the excitement rose. Any butterflies from earlier in the day disappeared and our children magnificently swam. Each child trying their absolute hardest and each swimming personal bests.
Mrs Allen and Mrs Weatherhead were so proud of each child with not only their effort but their impeccable behaviour whilst representing our school. Thank you also to all parents for their sporting support.
