Year 2 make a splash!

Year 2 make a splash!

Year 2 DUCKS children hosted a fantastic inter school swimming gala on Monday 20th March at Dulwich College swimming pool where they were joined by Alleyn's and JAGS Pre-Prep for their first fun competition together. It began with nervous excitement but ended with a jubilant double thumbs up from all.

Once the high whistle blew and the first race commenced the children kicked through the water with enthusiasm and didn’t look back. Individual events flashed by and were followed by fun team relays involving a colourful array of flippers, noodles and kick boards. Their weekly swimming lessons having given the children the tools to strive.

Declarations of, "I wish we could have had more races" and "That was so fun!" could be heard as the children wrapped themselves in towels following the finale.

Grateful thanks to Mr Davy, Catherine, Sally, Mario and Saskia for their organising and marshalling of the children. The biggest ‘thank you’ goes to the Year 2 swimmers for absolutely ‘stepping up to the plate’. They are now very much looking forward to their next gala at the end of May.
