On Friday 8th March, a team of Year 5 and 6 swimmers went to the annual Blackburn Primary Schools Gala held at Darwen Leisure Centre.
This was a late gala with it starting at 7pm but our team were far from tired. They were all ready and raring to go and everyone swam their fastest each person making their finals.
The team took an amazing 10 wins in the finals, with them being a close 2nd in two events and in the top 5 in the remaining events.
