In at the deep end
Well done to our 4 Year 5 swimmers who represented The Weald Primary School at the Dorking Schools Partnership Swimming Gala on 21st May. They were thrown in at the deep end, having to learn the rules of the gala very quickly before then competing in their heats. They had to learn complicated starts, the rules of the relay races, and what all the different whistles mean which just added to their nerves, but they pulled together and did us proud. Pictured are Olivia Trenchard who competed in the Jumbo Relay, Emmy Myles who did the 25m Butterfly and 2 relay races, Ethan Harrington-Benton who did 25m backstroke and the Jumbo Relay, and Georgie Davis who did 25m front crawl and 2 relay races. We are still waiting for the results to come through, but well done all of you for swimming your socks off. Thank you to Mrs Brown from St John's Primary School who took our children in a joint Weald and St John's venture.
