Swimming Gala

Swimming Gala 2019:

Despite falling several weeks earlier this year, the annual St. Bede's swimming gala was well attended by both children and supporting families in the crowd. 

Children from the Reception class all the way up to those in Year 6 took part in races over 10m, 25m or 50m using a range of different strokes. All the children were winners as they gave up their time to represent their houses and win points for their team.

We had 70 children in nearly 45 races this year and the event was concluded with the team relay (8 swimmers, 4 boys, 4 girls) over 200m!

Results as follows:

1st= St John Paul. 

2nd= Oscar Romero. 

3rd= St. Bernadette. 

4th=St. Theresa. 

Congratulations to St John Paul on retaining their title! There was only 1 point between 2nd and 3rd which just goes to highlight how vital every child's contribution was. Also well done to the girls and boys overall winners Constance Scurry and Louis McManus, both who won all of the individual races they competed in. There were lots of stand out performances though which bodes well for the upcoming Northwich Swimming gala at which we have been top 3 in the last 2 years!

Finally, another thank you to all the children who came along and took part. You make the event brilliant!

Swimming Gala 2018:

The weather was perfect for our swimming gala this year, with the sunshine adding the occasion despite being indoors! Over sixty children took part in 40+ races from Reception all the way through to Year 6. The effort and fair-play on show was brilliant too.

Overall results:

1st= St John Paul.

2nd= Oscar Romero.

3rd= St. Bernadette.

4th=St. Theresa

Big congratulations to Lana Booth (Y6) and JJ McManus (Y6) who won all 5 of their individual races and were crowned individual girl and boy winning swimmers for the event. See our Twitter feed for photos of our winners!

We now look forward to a successful  Northwich swimming gala this summer.

Swimming Gala 2017:

Each year St. Bede's hold their very own swimming gala to celebrate the swimming talents of all the children here. 

Our swimming gala was held on the 1st April 2017 with a fantastic turnout. Children from Reception to Year 6 took part in a variety of races - competing in their Houses. There was a total of 43 races this year!

The final team positions were as follows:

1st - Blue St. Mother Teresa 

2nd - Yellow Oscar Romero

3rd - Green St. John Paul

4th - Red St. Bernadette

St. Bede's will now compete in the Northwich Swimming Gala which will take place on Saturday 10th June. Good luck!
