Erewash South Schools Swimming Gala 11th April 2019 at West Park Leisure Centre
Mr Bunhejee and Mrs Dainty had a great time at the swimming gala on Thursday 11th April. We took 11 enthusiastic year 4, 5 and 6 boys to West Park Leisure Centre to compete against 9 other schools in 20 races. All races were over 25 metres in front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly and ended with boys and girls front crawl and medley relays. The boys were represented by Jack from year 5 and Logan, Oliver, Milan and Ethan from year 6. While the girls were represented by Maria from year 4, Emmanuela, Megan and Amelia from year 5 and Hope and Lily from year 6. All the children raced fantastically, showing real determination against their competitors, finishing in the top 3 in every one of their heats. A superb effort. At the end, all schools gathered round and results were announced in reverse order. Longmoor finished in 2nd place, 1 point ahead of Shardlow and just behind Firfield who won. A fabulous result for Longmoor. Well done to all the children for their hard work in our practice lessons. Thank you to Mrs Wenham for helping with transporting the children and all the parents and relatives who came along to support the children, it was great to see so many people supporting the team.
