Years 3 and 4 Swimming Gala

Thursday 20 November, with Mount Charles and Devoran Schools


Well done to all our swimmers at a noisy and exciting gala held in our Prep School Pool last week.


Our team of Year 3 and Year 4 swam superbly, with many swimming in their first gala.  I was impressed by how well our swimmers conducted themselves. With very little time for a briefing, everyone got on and swum the events they were asked to swim. The performances were truly amazing; especially for the challenging events such as butterfly!



Year 3 Girls – Elowyn, Phoebe, Evie and Gwen

Year 3 Boys – Wilfred, Finn L, Finn M, Sam and Henry

Year 4 Girls – Melissa, Emily, Amelia and Tara

Year 4 Boys – Joshua, Jamie, Sam and Jago


A big thank you goes to the team of helpers. Mrs MacQuarrie kept a cool head as she kept abreast of the results. Our Year 6 Leaders Gabriel and Nancy were excellent as they helped with placings and team marshalling. Zoe Waitz, our lifeguard, calmly organised our teams while watching the pool.

The other schools commented on how well we did to run 27 events in just 75 minutes.

All races were really close but the final results were:


Truro Prep 176

Mount Charles 168

Devoran 160


Well done everybody!


Mrs Russell
