This afternoon we held the 1st and 3rd Year house swimming gala.
After the highly successful 2nd year gala last Friday it would take a lot to beat the excellent swimming, but the 1st and 3rd years did not disappoint.
A total of four records were broken today, all by School house, not forgetting the two records broken by Smith house last Friday. A total of six broken records is testament to the hard work and dedication of the pupils who contribute to Truro School Swimming.
