Swimarathon

STOP PRESS!! FINAL COUNT!! SWIMARATHON TEAM RAISED £641.50 FOR THE ROTARY CLUB. 

On the 8th of February 2020, 17 pupils from GHF Primary School took part in the Swimarathon at the Meres Leisure

Overall, our three lanes took 1st, 2nd and 3rd place out of 5 other lanes and our total length as a school was 337. Split between the three lanes we achieved 110, 116 and 121 lengths.                                                                                                           

It was very tiring as we were swimming for an hour straight, with only the odd 30 second break at the end of each length when another team mate swam their length. We were all cheering each other on whilst singing our hearts out. Our teachers were very pleased with us, as we were amazing. We also received a goodie bag including a free swim bag, a donut and a packet of sweets. It was so much fun and we would definitely recommend that other children have a go next year!
