We held our annual school swimming sports at St Peter’s College, Cambridge last
Friday 2nd March 2018. The full school attended with many families coming along in support. The
junior classes participated in swimming demonstrations in the indoor pool before we all moved to the
outdoor pool for age group and championship races.
There was a great atmosphere of camaraderie and competition, with all students getting behind their swimmers, wearing their house colours and, being vocal in their support and encouragement.
The day finished with the hotly contested teachers, parents and students relay race, which was won by the parents’ team, but only just.
The 2018 Swimming Champion Boy was Devon, runner up was Harry. The 2018 Swimming Champion Girl was
Libby. Lucy and Greer were joint Runners Up.
A number of the top finishers will be challenging their peers at the Rural Schools Swimming sports on Monday 19 th March 2018.
Roto-o- Rangi School is fortunate to have its own outdoor heated swimming pool which allows students to enjoy swimming with their classes on a daily basis during Terms 1 and 4. This encourages children to become proficient in swimming and water safety.
