AJIS Swimming Gala

Year 6 students took part in the AJIS Swim Gala and performed well in a highly competitive arena with 3 swimmers reaching the finals!

Friday saw the Year 6 swim team compete at the annual AJIS gala.

There was difference this year however, as our usual 15 minute trip to Darwen leisure centre was replaced with a visit to Blackpool and the Palatine Leisure Centre. This is an extremely tough gala with over 20 schools competing. Races are fast and the year 6 have to swim further than normal where all their races are 50m. All of the swimmers swam excellently, giving everything they had in their races. Evie, Willa and Neel all made it through the heats to the finals, a huge achievement. Well Done to everyone who competed!

Evie Smith – 6th U11 50m Freestyle

Willa Barnett – 7th U11 50m Backstroke

Neel Vandanapu – 4th U11 50m Backstroke
