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:
