There had been great excitement leading up to the galas, and the days didn’t disappoint. The children were so proud to show off their swimming skills and water confidence and to showcase the improvements they have made over the year so far. Our highly skilled swimmers were a delight to watch as they demonstrated excellent technique, stamina and competitive spirit. But we were also so impressed by the determination and perseverance shown by the children who are still developing their swimming. They battled to reach the end, time after time, doing their very best and never giving up. Well done to you all. It was also a joy to watch our very young children having such fun, singing, dancing, splashing, kicking and being really confident in the water. I confess that seeing Mr Oscar leading action songs, complete with his guitar, in the baby pool was a highlight and a first for me. Thanks to the children, staff and parents for making these days such a great experience for all.
