Despite the roaring Manila heat, every pupil cheered on their team-mates home in every race as each of the respective houses competed for the Swimming House Trophy.
As the event drew to a close and as is the case with all closing swim events, it was left to the seniors (Y8-10) to fight it out in the 4 x 25m freestyle.
Despite the Saxons dominating the Swim Gala to that point, Team Romans, Vikings and Normans refused to lay down and let the Saxons finish on a high, and with 25m to go the gold medal was up for grabs and within reach of all four teams, but it was the Romans who finished the strongest and took victory in the final race of the day.
Congratulations again to the Saxons who ended the day as clear winners.
Well done to all involved and see you again next year.
