Swimming Gala

I am so proud  of those children who took part in the Swimming Gala yesterday.

They behaved amazingly, and fully embraced the experience, despite this being the first competitive event for many.

You can feel very proud of what you achieved as well as the impressive sportsmanship you showed.

We also got a sneaky play at the new park on the way home.

 Awesome work!
