On Monday 29 January, the KGJS swimming team travelled to West View Leisure Centre to take part in the St Pius Invitational Gala along with five other schools; St Pius, St Mary’s Hall, Rossall, Hunter Hall and Altrincham Prep.
The gala was for the U9s, U10s and U11s, involving individual races and relays. Mason Wilkins (U11 Breaststroke) and Isabel Tuck (U9 Butterfly) both finished first in their events.
In all the other races, the children performed very well and picked up lots of second and third place finishes.
At the end of the afternoon, KGJS finished a very pleasing second overall, which is our best result for many years. A huge thank you to St Pius for organising a very enjoyable gala and congratulations to Rossall School, who were the overall winners.
The following children represented the school:
Ewan Huck, Oliver Kollard, Ben Firth, Mason Wilkins, Jake Pedley, Rowen Edwards, Jenson Crompton, Jack Short, Christian Taylor-Tomlinson, Isabel Tuck, Lola Huyton, Emily Greenwood and Oliver Littlechild.
Well done to all!
