08 Mar Swimming gala report & results
The primary swimming gala took place at Abbs Cross School on Tuesday 7th March with 20 schools participating. Girls and boys raced over 25m in backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle and completed the session with a freestyle relay. All races were closely contested with 4 heats per event. The top 6 swimmers in each event then raced in a final to gain points for their school. Although many schools were represented in the finals, Gidea Park Primary were victorious in 6 out of the 8 races and were awarded the winners trophy.
Thanks must go to the staff and students at Abbs Cross School for hosting the afternoon. The sports leaders were a credit to the school and performed their duties with enthusiasm and efficiency.
