Gala at The Elms
The Elms, The Downs and Abberley
The children were excited to be going to an away gala at the Elms! A few had not competed in a gala before but were up for the challenge.
We started off on relays and our starts were awesome! We won the first race and this continued for most of the gala. The hard work we have put into the starts did show as we were coming up ahead in 90% of the races. Team spirit was fabulous and the children were so encouraging of each other for every single length.
There were some close finishes and this brought about some very loud cheering! It was nice to hear the Headmaster from the Elms compliment one of our swimmers on their race, saying that is how you swim!
A brilliant gala, and emphatic win and the Elms were lovely hosts.
