On Friday 26th March, 13 children took part in the Annual South Derbyshire Schools Swimming Gala at Greenbank Leisure Centre. The children took part in a range of individual and relay events, including crawl, back stroke and breast stroke. They swam brilliantly, and we were really proud of them when it was announced that they had come 5th out of 6 schools, as we were the smallest school taking part.
However, the highlight of the evening came when Fairmeadows was awarded the Fair Play Award, for their great support and encouragment for each other, and for the other competitors. It was also brilliant to see so many parents and supporters there to cheer the children on.
We had a great (although exhausting) evening, and we were very proud of you all!
Mrs Hodson-Walker and Miss Bartlam.
