Trafford Swimming Gala

“Last Friday I took 16 Year 7-10 students to the Trafford Swimming gala at St Ambrose” writes Miss Challinor. “We have been very successful here in the past, so I was very hopeful that we would come away with even more silver wear.

With some of the best swimmers from Trafford in attendance, we knew it was going to be tough, but all of the team swam like their lives depended on it and it paid off. They Year 9 girls in particular were outstanding, winning all but 1 of their individual and relay races and solid performances from Toby Andrews and Nikhil Thacker in Year 8 and Lucas Hill in Year 10 saw the competition go right down to the wire.

After all of the races were over and the results came in, our results were as follows:

Year 7/8 boys : 2nd place

Year 7/8 girls: 4th place

Year 9/10 boys: 5th place

Year 9/10 girls: 1st place

Our year 9/10 girls team are now just waiting to hear if they are off to represent Trafford at the Greater Manchester games in a few weeks time.

Well done to everyone who attended. They represented the school perfectly.”
