On Monday 16th May we travelled to Claremont Senior School for our annual swimming gala. We had swimmers from years 3, 4, 5 & 6 competing in backstroke, breaststroke and front crawl with year 6 also competing in butterfly. They also swam in freestyle and medley relays. We have many strong swimmers at Bricklehurst and every year the final result is getting closer and more competitive. There were several successful results including some impressive wins from Beth B and Ellie B whose swimming was exceptional. They helped increase our number of 1st and 2nd places swimming in numerous events, even winning some of the boys’ races! Further mention must also go to year 6 swimmers Olivia J, Isabel J, Ben S and Connor W who have consistently improved each year and have become very strong swimmers. Everyone selected swam really well and Mr Catt from Claremont, Mr Flowers and I all felt that Bricklehurst swimmers are going from strength to strength; so congratulations to everyone!
