On Friday 15th November two pupils that had previously qualified for the regional finals travelled to the Garrison Swimming Pool in Aldershot. The gala took place in a 50m eight lane pool which had a buzz of excitement around it.

Alice from year 4 raced in the freestyle and backstroke races her performance was great although she missed out on a place she swam extremely well in a very high profile gala. Sebastian in year 5 swam fantastically keeping a steady pace for the whole length. He finished 2nd taking over 2 seconds off his previous qualifying time.
