This week students took part in the annual Unity College Swimming Gala, held at St Peters Centre. There was a highly energised and electric atmosphere around the pool. All students showed the ultimate support for their House. It was a very competitive gala, with friendly rivalry between the Houses and individual success across the board. Students and staff cheered the competitors on in every race. Many races going down to the milli second making the events even more compelling to watch. All students from each of the four Houses did their House proud, with their effort and enthusiasm both in support and in their performance in the pool, in front crawl, breast stroke, back stroke and the relay.
In the end, the overall winning House was East House with Samuel Murray and Natalya Irvine getting the fastest times on the day. Congratulations also to Lydia Cryer and Chloe Waddington for winning Gold in their individual events and Gold in the year 7 relay, both from East House.
Well done to South House who made the best progress from last year’s results. Also congratulations to Ryan Connolly from South House who won Gold medals in back stroke and breast stroke.
All Students showed exceptional commitment including Kim Sykes and Kim Burrell from West House, Rachel Kay, Georgia Ashworth, Emma Wall from South House and Regan Burnie and Harvey Fletcher from North House.
