Festive Fun Gala and Happy Xmas
What a fun night we have had (only marred by my car not starting so sitting waiting for the AA!)
Over 40 swimmers and many proud supporters gathered at Eric Liddell Sports Centre for what is sure to become an annual event.
The gala was opened with an amazing synchro display by ABC swim school who run a synchro club on Tuesday evenings at Shooters Hill Campus. They made it all look so easy but we will try some of the synchro skills in our lessons next term as they are very challenging.
Each swimmer then took part in an individual race of their choice and abilities were matched and medals were won.
Then the competition started with 4 colour teams competing in festive races such as Speedy Santa, Delivering the Presents and Collecting the ‘dropped’ presents! Swimmers who didn’t know each other at the start were cheering each other on within minutes of the gala starting.
The A team were fantastic and I am very grateful for their help – who can forget Colin in his Bah Humbug hat and Santa apron.
Well done to the winning team – the Red Team but well done to all; parents, swimmers and teachers for making it a memorable night.
