On Tuesday afternoon, a group of boys and girls from Burlington Junior travelled to East Riding Leisure centre to participate in the Inter School Swimming Gala. After a quick warm up, the children were ready to take part in the first heats of the individual races that involved front crawl, back stroke and breast stroke. Many of them were successful in gaining a good qualifying time to compete in the finals for these.
Following these races, were the 4 x 25m relays and 4 x 25m mixed medley relay. Due to the event running smoothly, the children then had time to participate in some fun obstacle relays. The results of the gala were as follows:
1st – Martongate Primary
2nd – Wold Newton/Boynton
3rd – OLSP
4th – Burlington Junior
5th – Bay Primary
6th – Hilderthorpe Primary
Well done to all the swimmers who took part (some standing in at the last minute). Many thanks to all the parents who came down to support the children in the afternoon.
