To round off a busy sporting year, 22 children from Salford Primary School travelled to Bath Leisure Centre on Friday 5th July to take part in the annual schools’ gala.

This event is always a highlight in the school’s sporting calendar and this year was no exception. Once again, the standard was exceptionally high, with many club swimmers participating from the other local schools.

“We started the gala very strongly; Tayla’s 100m Individual Medley was worthy of a place in the GB squad!” said Mrs Brook from Saltford Primary. “The next 16 events comprised of 50m and 25m swims and relay races. Saltford won eight of these races, with strong individual wins from Daisy and Ewan.

“Saltford came second in five further races and third in the remaining three races. Many, many congratulations to Tayla, Daisy, Georgie, Millie, Ben, Ollie H, Ollie K, Jake, Chloe, Tessa, Frankie, Lily, Kobi, Ben, Ewan, Barney, Ella, Daniel H, Daniel B, Fergus, Amelia and Anselm. Everyone swam brilliantly and should all be extremely proud of themselves. We finished in second place overall, narrowly missing out on the top spot by just two points.

“Thank you to Mr Lye for coaching our superb team. Thank you also to Mrs Hathaway and Mrs Oliver for all of their help, and to all the family members who cheered the team along.”
