Congratulations to all our young swimmers in Years 1 and 2 who took part in our first annual ‘Infant Swim Gala’ on Thursday 9th May.
The morning heated up with excitement and as the temperature rose too, there was no better way than to spend the morning splashing around at the Lions Pool.
Year 1 lined up for the first of their 3 races and everyone completed a full length of ‘freestyle’. The second race got serious when children jumped in for the ‘rubber ring race’ and after a quick break for ice pops, they entered the water for the third and final time to do the ‘kickboard race’.
It was then Year 2’s turn and we did it all over again! Year 2 displayed some wonderful stoke techniques and it was a pleasure to see so many smiling faces.
A huge thank you to Julie Corsetti from ‘Deep Blue Images’, for the amazing photographs, to Farron and Danielle from ‘Swim & Trim’, to Kristin from ‘Sky Blue Aquatics’ and to Miss Laura from ‘Fitness Connection’ for their help with our young swimmers. Thank you to parents and teachers for all your support too.
Great fun was had all around and one Year 1 child even asked if we could do this every Thursday!
I said I’d check with Mr. Wilson
