On Saturday 31st January 2015 Highclare School Juniors took a swimming squad to Stechford Cascades to compete in the Sutton Schools' Swimming Gala. Individuals competed in backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle as well as medley and freestyle relays. The children raced in heats with the final position being decided at the end. Highclare featured prominently in the top three positions in many of the events giving the team a strong chance of winning a team trophy at the end. There was much joy and jubilation when the organiser announce that Highclare had won three trophies: The Combined Overall Boys’ and Girls’ Trophy, the Overall Boys’ Trophy and the Combined Relay Runner-up. Their achievements are testament to the fine work the children do in and out of school and was fully deserved. As you would expect, the children represented the school well and we are all very proud of their success.
Swimming Squad: Ruby N, Rosie D, Bethany R, Hope M, Abbie D, Torah S, Lauren R, Emilia G, Lizzie P, Edward B, Jack A, Samuel B, Toby R, Sam H, Scott G, Matthew R, William M, Jack N.
