The Primary School Swimming Gala was held at William Brookes School on Thursday 28 March. There was a close-run competition between Castlefields and St John’s, with Castlefields eventually winning the shield to make them winners four years on the run.
The gala was organised by East Shropshire Sports Partnership and William Brookes, with the competition being marshalled by Northgate Swimming Club. Castlefields’ head, Mrs Hampson, says, “There was great team spirit, with the more experienced swimmers supporting the younger children.
“Castlefields places swimming high on the fitness agenda, giving all children from age 7 upwards 6 weeks of swimming lessons each year.”
