Primary Swimming gala
On the 19th January a Swimming Gala was held at Ilfracombe pool for the Braunton Learning Community Primary Schools. It was a fantastic event and the atmosphere was brilliant with children cheering each other on right to the finish line whether they were first or last. The event ran really smoothly thanks to Jo Fogarty from Caen School and her impeccable organisation, ably supported by a team of year 9 Sports Leaders from Braunton Academy. This all girl team had the job of making sure all the pupils got to the poolside for their events as quickly as possible; quite a task amongst all the noise of children cheering enthusiastically. It was also quite a complicated role and the pupils needed to be on their toes to make sure no one missed their event. Our young leaders did a great job, and as a result the Gala ran very smoothly. It was a really enjoyable day for participants and spectators alike, especially for those from Caen School, the overall winner.
