Future Swimming Star!

By | News, Sporting Excellence, Year 5
In only his 3rd Gala and only 7 months after joining Rotherham Metro swimming club, Bowan has qualified for the Yorkshire finals in his age category for 50m backstroke. The qualifying time for a 10 year old boy is 45.6 seconds and Bowan recorded a time of 43.8 seconds. As well as this amazing achievement, he was less than a second off qualifying for 100m Freestyle. Bowan has more opportunities to qualify for more events at the Yorkshire Finals on the 7th September.
This is a fantastic achievement within his 1st year of swimming competitively and all of us are super proud of all the hard work and dedication Bowan has put in! We have a future swimming star on our hands!

Our sports council have asked if they can write a blog on the website. So here are their words:


Hello sports fans, this is this weeks hot news. First, we had the Y3-Y4 boys coming second in the South Yorkshire football finals. They came so close and left with their heads held high. Also, Mrs Jepson said that their performance was outstanding.


Yesterday, Y5-Y6 team A did an outstanding routine in there advanced level gymnastics. They came second and nearly secured first place for the Rotherham finals. Team B advanced level came third with another outstanding performance and should be proud coming in this position.


Coming up

Coming up we have the athletics and I hope the students competing try their very best and give it one hundred percent. Also we have the Y4, Y5 and Y6 cross country South Yorkshire finals and I hope they enjoy it and try their very best.


Yours sincerely

Sports Council and Mrs Jepson
