Our team of 14 atheletes are now at the COBIS Primary Games in Athens. Here's just an excerpt from our daily blog:
It was our swimming competition today and all children beat their personal bests in their individual events. We placed top three in heats for back stroke (Vic- first place, Simone - second place), Butterfly (Jotaro - first place, Vic - second place and Polina - third place), breast stroke (Kenan - second place) and 50m freestyle (Amaya - second place) and our boys relay medley team placed third in their heat.
The finals took place in the afternoon and we were the proud winners of 3 medals! Gold for Vic in backstroke, Bronze for Vic in butterfly and Bronze for boys medley relay (Jotaro, Brendan, Vic and Kenan). We placed 8th overall, which is a great result for our first competition.
It's been a fantastic day of sporting achievements for our team but we are most proud of the way our pupils have worked together. Everyone has supported their team mates and displayed a positive and healthy attitude towards competing. They've begun to meet pupils from the other schools and have been really respectful of the other teams.
We are so proud of them! Go Knights!
