Franklin win in the return of the KAA swimming gala
With swimming making a return to the PE curriculum this year at KAA, it was time to bring back the annual swimming gala. The swimmers and spectators headed over to the Kensington Leisure Centre after school on Friday 28th June to pit the houses against each other in one of the last interim competitions of the year.
The PE department were overwhelmed at the enthusiasm of the competitors who showed fantastic commitment and organisation in being fully prepared for the after school event. Year 7 & 8 were particularly well represented and had highly competitive races. The crowd also provided supportive motivation to all competitors.
There was some stand out performances from Rama (7 Wertenbaker), David (8 Truth), Tashi (9 Radcliffe) and Bobby (10 Nijinsky). The afternoon was dominated by the Franklin swimmers, even with Honeyball’s’ last minute relay success it was a comfortable win for Franklin. The final results saw Franklin in first, Honeyball in second, Pankhurst in third and Angelou in fourth place.
Well done to all who took part, it was brilliant to see such a variety of students at this sporting event and we now look forward to Sports Day on Friday 12th July.
