School Games Swimming Gala

With the School Games in full flow, we headed to Total Fitness in Bolton as primary schools put on their SwimStars caps for a day of fun at the pool.


12 primary schools brought 8 swimmers each for a gala to remember as they fought for their place at Greater Manchester School Games - But it wasn’t all about the gold medals.

Valley School’s PE Coordinator said “It’s great to be here competing, even though we didn’t make the podium in any of the races – some of our swimmers today were frightened of even entering the water 3 months ago!”

Another teacher even recognised one of her current swimmers from the school group that had been nervous getting in the water in her first lesson with SwimStars, saying “To see her now racing up and down, just shows how much progress she has made and how brave she has been!”


Well done swimmers!
