Swimming Gala – South Tyneside Finals

WOW! What can we say? We are immensely proud of our Year 6 swim team!  Back in February, the children attended the Gateshead Swimming Gala and competed against 32 other schools for a place in the county finals.  Our children put on an amazing performance and they showed such a positive attitude whilst at the pool side by constantly cheering on their peers.  The girls were awarded a gold medal in the medley relay and one of the girl’s finished 2nd place in the breast stroke race and was awarded  a silver medal.  As a team, we finished in the top 8 and made it through to the finals.  The county finals were held at Haven Point pool in South Shields and 16 schools made it through.  Our team wowed us again as they tried their best during every race and showed great sportsmanship.  Although we weren’t placed this time, we are so proud of each and every one you!  We had a brilliant day out and managed to squeeze in time to stop on the beach for some lunch!  Also, a huge thank you to our spectators who came along to support us at both events.
