Swimming Gala

On Friday Miss Riches and Miss Connell took a team of 15 children to compete in the higher seeded swimming gala for Sutton. The children were excellent role models for the school and demonstrated a high level of sportsmanship throughout the evening. All of the children did brilliantly in their individual events. We were awarded 9 medals for individual events – including 5 gold medals, 2 silver medals and 2 bronze medals!  Then came the team relays. Again, the children swam their best and had high spirits going into the final stages of the gala. The girls’ team won both of their relays (medley and freestyle) and the boys’ team  came 3rd in both of their relays. Then we had to wait for the final results! Overall the boys’ team came 4th and the girls’ team came 1st. Then they announced the overall winners. With an outstanding 11 point lead, it was announced that Avenue were the overall winners! Well done to everyone who swam in the gala as points from every event were included in the final result. Mia did a great job of being the swimming captain – thank you for supporting the team so well! Thank you to all of the parents who stayed and watched and cheered us on. ​
