2016 Schools' Swimming Gala

On Friday 17th June, 16 children represented Thomas Russell Junior School at the 2016 Schools’ Gala. They were: Y3 – Mica C, Holly H, Beau W, George K Y4 – Will S, Harrison J, Ruby W, Evelyn H Y5 – Ella C, Ella H, Isaac G, Aidan J Y6 – Max C, Noah O’B, Alex A, Katie S. The evening is always a very exciting affair and this one was no exception.

TRJS made a pleasing start, with a couple of children securing PBs and some dramatic first place wins. There were some hotly contested races, but we managed to keep clocking up the fast times to build a strong lead. The team were praised for their excellent attitude and the way they supported each other.

Congratulations to the swim team, thank you to all of the parents who braved the humidity and noise to support and thank you to Mrs Owen and Mrs Jackson for your organisation. A brilliant achievement to retain the winners’ cup for the 3rd consecutive year!
