The standard of swimming at the competition was high and all children tried their best. Our pupils were a credit to their school; they showed skill, determination and a good team spirit and encouraged their peers from the pool side. Well done to Kristian, Conall, Jack and Connie in Year 6, Bryn, Jude, Alexander, Riley and Willow in Year 4 and Amelia, Jessica, Olivia and Freya in Year 3.
