Junior School Swimmers Compete at Ponds Forge
Ten Stamford Junior School pupils were selected to represent their school and county in the English Schools’ Swimming Association’s relay finals held at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.
The two Junior School teams swam a 4x25m freestyle relay, and a 4x25m medley relay. Although the teams narrowly missed out on reaching the finals, it was a memorable experience for them to swim in an Olympic sized pool which boasts world class facilities.
Amie White, Swimming Teacher at Stamford Junior School said, “The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and their attitude towards team members from other schools was admirable. Now they have seen the standard that can be achieved they are all determined to work hard in the pool ready for next years’ finals.”
