Swimming Gala

On Tuesday 27th March, the swimming team took part in a gala, comprising pupils from 21 different schools from the locality, at the leisure centre. Unfortunately this date was also the day that the senior choir were due to perform at the Portadown festival, so the team numbers were slightly depleted.

There were a variety of individual events (front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke), and also three fun relay races which were used to determine the overall winning school.

The following pupils won their individual heats:

Darcy Morris – Back crawl, Breast stroke and Front Crawl

Mia Silutina – Back Crawl, Breast stroke and Front Crawl

James Bell – Breast stroke

Adam McGeown – Breast stroke


There were some fantastic individual performances and Mia Silutina gained first place overall in Back Crawl – a fabulous achievement considering the strong competition.


Well done to all the pupils who took part and also to Mrs Gillis for accompanying the team:


Mia Silutina      Darcy Morris     Harry Bownes      James Bell      Michael McErlane    Gary Simpson    Adam McGeown
