Juniors Win Big at Maidenhead Marlins Swimming Gala
A recent trip to the Magnet Leisure Centre saw Junior Boys and Girls compete in the Maidenhead Marlins Primary Schools Swimming Gala, with Junior Girls winning an astonishing 17 medals and finishing 2nd and Junior Boys finishing 1st overall in their respective competitions.
Eight schools from Maidenhead and the surrounding area took part in the gala, which for many competitors was their first event in a 25 metre eight lane pool. The pupils competed in a mixture of individual stroke races and combined for the mixed relay races. This was one of the few times that the boys and girls get swim together as a team, with the relay teams comprised of two boys and two girls.
Brad Pennington, Junior Boys PE teacher, said:
“All pupils should be very proud of themselves both as swimmers and as ambassadors of Claires Court.”
