Competition Result – Monday 16th May – Y4/5 Novice Swimming Gala
On Monday 16th, Whitemoor's swimming team arrived at Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre – ready to compete in the Novice Gala.
There was a mixture of nerves and excitement as the children prepared to race. For many of our younger swimmers, this was their first experience of a inter-school sports competition. Once the event got going, it was clear to see that any nervousness had disappeared and the whole team thoroughly enjoyed the morning's events.
There were some fantastic races, including: push the ball walking relay, blowing an egg race, domino castle relay; as well as some individual races such as back stroke, front crawl and breaststroke (in which Whitemoor did incredibly well). Everyone returned to school tired but happy as they scored enough points to finish in 2nd place and therefore earn silver medals!
The adults who attended the event were extremely proud of ALL our competitors and, once again, was fantastic to see the impact earning a medal had in regards to raising both their confidence and self-esteem.
Well done to our fantastic swimming team, who were made up of: Amelia B, Charlie D, Elijah H, Jonelle T, Alexis T, Sophie H, Jayden R, Alfie G, Mason W, Twuan M, Shamai P and Nevaya P.
