Great Gala display for Highnam Academy

Today a team of 24 pupils took part in the Newent Primary Schools Swimming Gala. Our team was competing against Picklenash, Staunton and Corse and Tibberton. Dan A, Harriet, Harry E, Charlotte, Hannah, Jamie-Ray and William got the team off to a fantastic start by winning their individual races.

This gives them a place in the Gala Final on 15th March

The Relays followed the individual races. The Year 6 boys' team consisting of Dan, Alex G, Matthew and James won the Freestyle relays. Well done also to the Year 6 girls team (Sian, Abigail, Hannah and Tia) who came first in the Medley relay. The Year 5 girls' team won both the Frontcrawl and Medley relay - well done to Harriet, Yinka, Molly, Hannah and Helen. Next it was the Year 5 boys' turn and they won both relays - well done to Alex, Ben, Jamie-Ray, Cameron and Harry E.

To end a fantastic gala for Highnam Molly, Jamie-Ray, Ella and Dan won the Canon relay. The whole team swam superbly and supported each other throughout the event. Finally a special mention to Harriet, Hannah, Jamie-Ray, Dan and the Year 5 Frontcrawl team for all breaking previous gala records.

At the end we were all very pleased when Mr Mills read out the final team results.

Thank you to everyone who came along to support the team and we are all looking forward to the finals in March
