On Thursday 4th February, we took a team of 12 x Year 5 and 6 children to the Swimming Gala which was held at Marlborough Leisure Centre. All of the children competed in a variety of swimming lengths including relay races. The adults who accompanied them were extremely impressed by how the children supported not only each other, but other schools as well. In addition, the ASA officials noted how well mannered the children from Woodborough School were.
Mrs Blacker and Mrs Lowe who accompanied the team would like to congratulate those children who put themselves out of their comfort zone by competing in races that were not their first choice. This meant that we entered somebody from our school into each race. Well done to all of the children who took part- you were great ambassadors for the school. Woodborough finished fifth overall, and the points were extremely close between third, fourth and fifth place.
We are very grateful to the parents who supported the event and cheered on from poolside.
