On March the 28th we took part in the Newent Cluster Primary School Swimming Gala @ Newent Community School and came in 2nd place! The event was absolutely fantastic and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves which is just amazing, the races were both individual and team relays and the effort and commitment the children put in really was tremendous.
It was a very close competition, especially between us and Hingham who won the event with only a few races ensuring the win for Highnam. However, we came 1st in 13 of the 27 races and children from Picklenash set 3 new records. Lucas Holford set a NR in the Year 6 Boys Butterfly and Year 6 Boys Individual Medley & the Year 4&5 Girls (Ellie Meek, Alicia Holford, Olivia Walters and Amelia Pontin-Medes) set a new record for the Girls Medley which is superb!
The event was a great success and you really felt all children from all the schools worked together as one big team to encourage, inspire and communicate to make the event the best it could be! We really are so proud of our team once again for the way the represented the school and themselves!
Mr Fowler & Miss Nuttall very much look forward to the next event after the Easter Holidays.
