Year 4 swimmers selected for North Dorset
The North Dorset Primary Schools Gala for year 4 was hosted by Clayesmore Prep School on Tuesday, 1st May. Joining Clayesmore were 8 schools from the local area, Milldown Primary, Gillingham Primary, St Andrew’s Primary, Knighton House, Motcombe Primary, Shaftesbury Primary, Stalbridge Primary, St Mary the Virgin Primary and Gillingham.
For many Year 4 pupils this is their very first experience of competing in a school gala, and all the swimmers enjoyed taking part in their events. The standard of swimming was the best we have seen for many years.
The event is the qualifying round and pupils hope to be selected to represent North Dorset Primary Schools at the Dorset Primary Schools' final. The finals will take place on Saturday, 30th June 2012, from 5.45pm to 8pm and North Dorset swimmers will compete against other areas, with a hope of becoming Dorset Primary Schools' Champions.
After the qualifying gala a number of our Year 4 swimmers have been selected for the North Dorset Team:
Louise Cliff: 25 metres breaststroke
