4/5/6 Swimming Gala December 2018
Our swimmers took part in the annual NSSPEA Swimming Gala at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre. The children were very nervous as they hadn't taken part in a swimming gala before. They were amazed when they saw how many other schools were taking part and how many people were there.
Every swimmer did amazingly and tried their hardest against the other children, some of whom swim for a club. They demonstrated great determination and resilience, never giving up. Mrs Chambelain and I were very proud.
Well done Team Walliscote
