On Wednesday 17th May all the girls in the High March swimming squads took part in an interschool swimming gala. It was excellent to see all the girls competing and we had some superb performances across all year groups. A special mention goes to the Year 3 girls. Despite it being their first gala in many cases, they showed good stroke skills and some racing starts off the blocks! The team captains were as follows: Lara M for Team Turtles, Taya for Team Whales and Danusia for Team Sharks. They all did an excellent job, setting a good example to the younger girls and helping to organise their teams.
The gala opened with the Year 4, 5 & 6 Individual Medley races. Then we moved onto the individual races in all four strokes, with the gala culminating in some fast paced relay races. The end results were very close with, in third place the Sharks with 53 points, in second place the Whales with 55 points and the winners were the Turtles with 64 points.
Well done to all the girls who took part and thank you to the Year 3 parents for coming to show your support!
