Harlow Schools Swimming Gala

The very first Harlow schools swimming gala took place on Friday 24th February at the Harlow Leisure Zone. This is a great venue for Saint Nicholas’ swimming squad as it has eight racing lanes, a depth changing floor and a viewing area around the pool.
Saint Nicholas competed in every race, scoring points and earning many medals which were presented in last Friday’s assembly by the Headmaster. They are: Lucy, breaststroke; Ben, breaststroke & freestyle; Jack, freestyle; Tara, backstroke; Louis, backstroke; Year 5&6 boys relay – Ben, Louis, Jack (Year 4) & Jenson; Year 5&6 girls relay – Paige, Rose, Tara, & Olivia.
Overall, Saint Nicholas finished an impressive 2nd in both the Year 3/4 and also the Year 5/6 event. The school is very keen for this to become an established fixture which will provide the children with excellent experience leading up to the ISA swimming event.
