Catholic Schools' Swimming Gala March 2018
On Saturday 24th March, our school team made up of Year 5 and Year 6 children took part in the annual Catholic Schools' Swimming Gala at Wyndley Leisure Centre in Sutton Coldfield.
Twenty two schools, from across the diocese, took part and the competition was extremely strong with some excellent swimmers taking part.
All our swimmers swam superbly in their heats and were a credit to the school both in their performances and behaviour.
In three events we performed particularly well and our swimmers were successful in reaching the finals.
The boys' relay team achieved 6th place in an incredibly fast, fiercely fought freestyle relay final while both our boys' and girls' breaststrokers also made their finals.
Our boys' breaststroke swimmer came 6th overall, whilst our girls' breaststroker swam amazingly to come 3rd!
It was a wonderful way to spent a Saturday evening and was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.
Many thanks to both the children, who gave up their Saturday evening to take part, and to the parents who brought them and were great supporters.
Swimming Gala Success 2018
Congratulations to our Year 5/6 swimming team who won the Interschools' Gala on Wednesday 28th March. Many thanks to Bishop Challoner and the boys at King Edward's VI for all their hard work in organising it.
Year 5 children took part in a Football Tournament at St Lawrence School in Northfield recently with great success. Here is their write-up of what happened on that exciting night.
First of all we arrived at St Lawrence School to play football. Our first match was against St Mary's. This was our first match together ever, but we won 2-0 thanks to Noelie who scored both goals.
Our second match was against St Lawrence, and Noelie scored again for us to win 1-0.
Our final match was against Bells Farm. It was a very exciting match, but ended up as a 0-0 draw.
At the end of the tournament we found out that we had come first overall and we are through to the finals in a few weeks time. Special thanks to Mr Silverton for being a great manager.
