Competitive swimming success
Girls and boys at St George's Junior School have had competitive swimming success in the IAPS Swimming Gala. IAPS is the Independent Association of Prep Schools.
St George's Junior School took part for the first time in the IAPS Swimming Gala, which was hosted at St Teresa’s Effingham on Thursday 9 February. Nineteen pupils from Years 5 and 6 were selected to represent St George's in both individual and team events, based on their personal best' data and Inter-House Swimming Gala results from the summer of 2016.
The St George’s pupils performed brilliantly, winning many of our heats. In March, we will hear whether any of our boys and girls qualify for the national finals.
St George's Junior School has been looking to offer more opportunities for pupils to compete in events from the PE curriculum and, added to swimming, is already doing this with the introduction of Gymnastics.
