St Joseph'sCatholic Primary & Nursery School

Year 3/6 Swimmers Crowned Gala Champions

Well, what can I say.......Never in my 21 years of teaching at St Joseph's have our Swimming team come so close to winning the overall Burnham-on-Sea swimming gala! The children from Years 3 and 6 who competed this afternoon against 8 other schools from around the area were just quite simply remarkable! We forged ahead in the competition at the half way stage and maintained a slender lead over St Andrew's finishing the afternoon 6 points clear in first place! With two sets of gala results combined we finished with with 271 points, just 8 points behind the overall winners but 80 points in front of third place! We've never been so close!!!!!! Well done everyone who competed in either gala (and a special well done to Matilda, Kitty and Niamh who were all swimming up a year today) - truly amazing.
