Weekly swimming lessons at St Peter’s School aim to build up pupils’ stroke and footwork skills to the standards set by the ASA (Amateur Swimming Association). Once these two skills areas are in place for a variety of strokes then speed and stamina can also be built upon. Our annual Swimming Gala in Key Stage Two sets up a competitive forum within which pupils’ swimming progress can be showcased, and what a show of talent and resilience there was this year. For Year Three pupils, this was their first gala and they certainly did themselves proud. We had superb swimming and effort from all of our pupils taking part and as always, our parents were a fantastic crowd, cheering on each and every swimmer, clapping unceasingly until all competitors reached their finish line. Thank you! Congratulations Pitsford…but watch out, Rutland, Thorpe and Grafham are plotting their comeback at the forthcoming Summer Games Day and Sports Day!
