Last Friday, our Y5/6 swimming team took part in the ESSA gala in Oxford. It was an exciting opportunity as Cholsey had not taken part before and the children had to demonstrate a high ability including fast times in order to be accepted to compete.
The boys took part in two relay races (medley and freestyle) and progressed through the heats into the finals of both events. Overall, we came 4th in the Medley relay and 2nd in the Freestyle relay! We are waiting to hear if we have progressed to the South Region finals.
The children performed to an exceptional standard against some very difficult schools - well done!
Thank you to the Powis family for helping to transport the children to the venue.
