Sports Partnership Swimming Gala

This Thursday, 11th January, Truro School hosted the annual Sports Partnership swimming gala. Eight schools participated in this very popular event and it was the first time Shortlanesend had ever entered a team-fantastic!
The event took place all morning and included races that involved all the 4 main swimming strokes: freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly, as well as team relays. The competition was split between year 5 and year 6 with Shortlanesend entering 8 pupils (4 girls and 4 boys) in each year group. 
The competition was of a very high standard but there were successes for our team in the year 5 boys breaststroke and the year 6 boys freestyle.
In the final standings, Shortlanesend finished an incredible sixth position-a fantastic effort and as ever, a credit to the school, well done.
