Swimming Champions 2012!

Westholme crowned BDSSA Swimming Champions


The annual Junior Blackburn with Darwen District Gala for Years 7 – 9 was held at QEGS swimming pool recently.   This year was particularly important as it was the Centenary Anniversary for the Gala and the prize presenter was Westholme’s reitred swimming teacher, Mrs Jepson.

The competition was extremely high and the Westholme girls swam extremely well.   Congratulations should go to May Daley, Anya White and Jessica Smith from Year 9, Charlotte Berry from Year 8 and Natasha Rogan from Year 7 who all performed incredibly well and won their individual events convincingly.  

Due to the fantastic team effort and spirit shown by our swimmers they earned themselves the title of Blackburn with Darwen Swimming Champions.   Well done to all the swimmers.
