Culford Pre-Prep Make a Big Splash!

Published Wednesday 27th of May 2015 12:09:12 PM

Pupils at Culford Pre-Prep took part in their annual Swimming Gala on Friday 22nd May. The children, aged 4 to 7, took to the water at Culford Sports & Tennis Centre in front of an audience of parents and teachers.

The Pre-Prep pupils participate in weekly swimming lessons throughout the year and the Swimming Gala is a chance for them to put their skills into practice.

The Reception children swam widths with the aid of a float. Each race focused on a different stroke, with pupils doing front crawl, back crawl and breast stroke. They then took part in a relay style race, working in two teams using their chosen swimming style. Importance was placed on making sure their technique was correct rather than winning, but the children enjoyed the competition!

Pupils of all abilities in Years 1 and Year 2 also swam to a chorus of cheers. The stronger swimmers, aged 6 and 7, wowed the audience by swimming lengths using complex strokes without floats.

Headmistress, Sarah Preston, commented, 'The children had a fantastic afternoon of swimming and we were delighted to see how many of them have progressed with both their swimming strokes and confidence in the water.'
