An inspirational and noisy afternoon
Over 150 swimmers competed in this annual event held at Alton Sports Centre in January. Ten junior schools participated and a large number of friends, parents and grandparents cheered the swimmers on from the balcony.
There were individual races for each year group plus relay races and a big “Squadron” relay to finish involving 8 swimmers per school.
Rowledge won the larger schools category and St Lawrence topped the smaller schools category. For the second year running Binsted won the overall best participating school – their students, friends and parents were fantastically supportive and enthusiastic all afternoon.
Eggar’s were delighted to once again sponsor the event, providing swimming caps for every swimmer and a team of Sports Helpers who did an excellent job of keeping score, judging places at the finish line, and above all providing great support and care of the young swimmers. A credit to the school!

How wonderful to receive this email .... 'I wanted you to know how impressed I was by your pupils at the Old Vic last night. Every single child was very polite, thanking us for moving so they could take their seats. They really were a credit to your school. Best wishes, ...' https://t.co/xXiPazphrl 7:04 PM - 10 Dec 2018
