I had the pleasure this afternoon of joining children from years 4,5 and 6 at the Heanor Swimming Gala.
It was a big event at William Gregg Leisure Centre with around 12 schools taking part.
First were the heats and our children performed incredibly well winning the majority of them. The top four swimmers from the heats then raced in fierce competition in the finals.
The children raced with great skill and determination and we were fortunate to win a few races with Georgina, Bethany, Elliott and Libby all picking up medals and our Year 3/4 relay team managed a win too!
I couldn't be prouder of our children, their behaviour, teamwork and focus was a joy to see.
A massive thank you to Mrs Shaw for a lot of organisation and work that was completed in her own spare time. This ensured the event was so successful.
Also, a huge thank you to all those parents and grandparents who came to support our children at the gala. We certainly had the best and loudest fans!!
What a great way to end the week. Awesome work children, go Smalley!
