Swimming Sports

The swimming sports was a very successful two days, it was great to see so many junior and senior students get involved in both house events and competition events. The house events are a highlight of the swimming sports, it started off with the dressing gown race where junior and senior students take turns getting thrown into the pool then swimming/running with a long and heavy dressing gown on (this more difficult than it sounds). Next was the baton race where junior and senior students take turns again swimming/running doing a width of the pool, where they must pass the baton before the next person can take off. After that there was the lilo race (my personal favourite) this is where again junior and senior students take turns in pairs lying on the lilo not letting their feet touch the ground, kicking their hearts out trying to finish a length of the pool. The last event was the 4 X 1 race, this race is where each junior and senior student participating have four people in each age group team swimming one length of the pool as fast as they can in hope to beat the other houses. Each of these events had house members yelling and screaming to support to their houses, it was so great to see and be apart of the house pride and support throughout the swimming sports when events were taking place and when they weren't. The overall winning house of the swimming sports was (rightfully) Pitcaithly, a big well done to Pitcaithly. I would like to thank all of the people who helped set up all of the swimming equipment and all of the behind the scenes work making it all possible, a special thank you to Mrs Tagiaia for the swimming sports. She did an amazing job organising it all.
