Competition Result – Monday 21st May – Y5/6 Novice Swimming Gala
Yesterday morning, Whitemoor's Swimming team traveled over to the pools at Harvey Hadden, ready to take part in this year's Novice Gala.
The Novice Gala is aimed at entry level / beginner swimmers in Years 5 and 6. Each swimmer competes in no more than two individual races, with a team being made up of 12 children (6 boys and 6 girls).
There were some brilliant events, such as: 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.
When the final points were added to each team's score, Whitemoor discovered they'd just missed out on a medal - finishing in 4th place. However, all of our team should be very proud of the efforts they put in during their time in the water.
This year's Novice Swimming Gala team were: Taylor T, Elijah K, Kavan S, Zahrah S, Katie K, Shania E, Jacob H, Rhys M, Shamai P, Aaliyah B, Mara A and Jessica R.
