Congratulations to our Year 5 and 6 mixed swimming team, who competed yesterday against eight other local schools (St Egwin’s Middle, Bredon Hill Middle, St Barnabus Middle, St Nicholas Middle, Abbey Park Middle, Blackminster Middle and The De Montford Middle School). The team swam so well that they won the competition and brought home the shield! It was a very convincing win, with them finishing 7 points clear of the school who came second.
Special mention to David Annis, who broke a long standing South Worcestershire Gala record in his backstroke final!
Thank you to all our staff who teach swimming (Mrs Annis, Mrs Andrews and Mrs Doyle). Your expertise, enthusiasm and dedication to swimming at Holy Redeemer are very much appreciated.
Thanks also to Mrs Annis for training the team and taking them to the event, and to Marie Porter, who gave up her morning to go with them and support them.
