A swimathon was held on Saturday 19th September to raise money for Anna Watson a year 5 pupil. The proceeds of £2808.92 will be put to the cost of mobility aids for Anna.
Everyone involved worked hard to make this a great success but especially Andrea Feasby who works in Poplar Class as a teaching assistant during the week. Andrea is also a swimming instructor and used her considerable skills to bring together other swimming instructors, staff from our school and pupils and parents for the event.
Our children were resilient, determined and everyone managed to meet or exceed their personal length targets in the pool. Adults were on hand to count lengths, support children and of course Anna assisted with DJ ing at poolside. Thanks go to everyone but particularly parents who supported swimmers with donations and cheering on.
Please feel free to download the Swimathon PDF as a keepsake.
