This week at Ponds Forge International Pool, our swimming team were in action competing again in the ‘A’ league, which means we are up against some of the strongest schools in Sheffield. Mrs Proost and Mrs Corns have done an amazing job putting together the team and providing extra race and technique training down at the Leisure Centre. In addition, we are very grateful for ‘Friends of SJS’ for providing t-shirts and race caps for the team which looked really smart.
The ten races consisted of Freestyle and Medley relays which is a real team effort from both lower and upper school, with some first time swimmers taking part. The races are very testing of the children’s endurance but every team member gave 100% for their school and gave it a real good go. We ended up placing 7th overall out of 9 schools and will maintain our place in the top league for 2020. Well done team Stocksbridge!
