On Monday, we hosted the Special Schools Swim Gala at our state of the art pool.
Schools from across the region were invited to take place and came for the day, even having their lunch here. It was very informal and there was no rush to the day.:
There were a mixture of events, usual racing for speed as well as a number of other events to keep it inclusive for the the weaker swimmers- Float the Object, Push ‘n’ Glide challenge, Obstacle course.
Each school was presented with a framed certificate and there were stunning Panathlon medals for Bronze, Silver and Gold for each event.
The overall winning team was Pendle View who received a beautiful trophy and posh Panathlon swim towels for their team.
The event was supported by our Sports Leaders and Sixth Form BTEC Sport students, who worked tirelessly, starting and ending races, as well as recording results and preparing the swimmers for races. They were a real credit to the Academy.
