Superb Swimming!

AJIS Swimming Gala

All the swimmers should be utterly proud of the determination and tenacity they showed at the AJIS swimming gala earlier this week.

The standard of swimming was top class and our team did really well to get through to as many finals as they did. We also came away with medals of all colours – an incredible achievement!

A particularly large well done should go to the Year 5 girls’ freestyle relay team who, after finishing with the second fastest time in the heats, went on to swim an awesome race resulting in them winning the event!
