On Thursday 21st January a team of boys from years 3 – 6 took part in the London Independent Schools Swimming Championships Semi-Final at Dulwich College. The stakes were high in this competition, as only the top 3 teams would qualify for the London Grand Final.
This was a very tough competition and all boys swam exceedingly well and achieved personal bests in their individual events. Particular congratulations to those boys who have only recently joined Swimming Squad and so were representing the school for the first time: Nicholas 3W, Marius 3C, Daniel 3L, Alan 3L, Nate 4W, James 5H.
Once the gala had finished the boys nervously waited to hear if we had qualified for the next round. With an impressive 450 points scored, we made it safely into second place and secured a place in the Grand Final! Indeed, not only did we come second in the overall points, but we were able to win the year 4 age group!
Mr Chudzynski and Mr Bedford would like to thank the boys for all their hard work, and congratulate them on this brilliant achievement. We wish the team the best of luck in the Grand Final, which takes place later this term.
