Swimming Gala

Good afternoon, everyone! 👋🏼


What a morning we had at the school’s swimming gala! 🏊🏼‍♀️


Mrs Poxon, Mrs Pailing and I took 18 of our KS2 children to Kimberley Leisure Centre for a morning of intense competition and some of the closest swimming races I’ve ever seen! 😬😅  


All of the children who came with us this morning did themselves and Greasley proud. The encouragement that the children had for one another was really something special, and the cheers for one another during the races… well, it was absolutely deafening! Greasley definitely raised the roof! 😂💪🏼


Overall we came 2nd out of the 5 schools that attended and we are so, so happy with how each and every child represented us.


This is the highest we have ever come at the gala, and seeing the swim teams' faces (and hearing their cheers!) when they heard we’d come 2nd was brilliant 🥈💙


🌟 A special shoutout to four of the team who won their races – Seth, Alexander, Ava and Evie – what fantastic swims! 🥇


🌟 Another big shout out also to the 50+ children who attended our gala trials before half term, and our 6 fantastic reserves – we are so lucky to have such enthusiastic children at Greasley who are ready and willing to represent us so thank you to those children too 🌈😊
