EPSSA Swim and Dive Gala 2014

Thank you to Mrs Beth Walker, our wonderful PE Specialist, for organising and compering the Swim and Dive Gala event for all city primary schools on Wednesday 2nd April 10am -12.30pm at the Royal Commonwealth Pool. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event for all 500 children competing. Thank you to all the families who lent their support and cheered everyone on. All our P7 swimmers swam really well in the Breaststroke, Backstroke and Front Crawl, managing to reach the Finals of the Breastroke and Front Crawl and narrowly missing a place in the Backstroke Final. Phoebe and Cerys in P6 competed very well in the Diving and Alistair in P6A performed superbly to achieve a Silver medal. 'A' and 'B' schools competed in the event and 'A' Schools results are shown below. ('A' schools are larger city schools. All primary schools have an EPSSA - Edinburgh Primary Schools Sports Association - number and ours is 70.)

William sports one of our new swimming caps. 

Thank you to Sciennes' parent Jacqui Wright for acquiring our new caps and to the PTA for funding.

Here is a message from Mrs Walker:

Thank you to all school staff, parents and coaches for bringing their teams to our fantastic Commonwealth Swim Relay and Dive Gala yesterday at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.

Thank you to all Active School Co-ordinators, Edinburgh College students, Edinburgh Leisure Top Up team, Tyrie and his starting team and Warrender Baths Club officials for their support on the poolside.  Thank you to all swim specialists for their trialling of teams and their continued hard work to provide swimming for all in the City.

The Commonwealth Baton comes to Edinburgh on Saturday 14th June!

Enjoy a well deserved holiday.

Kind regards

Beth Walker
