Yesterday, Year 6 competed against 4 other Bexley schools in the annual swimming gala at Crook Log leisure centre. That, as impressive as it was, is not the best part … Upland won GOLD!!
All the children, involved in all the races, performed absolutely brilliantly not only in their individual races but also in the team and relay events.
The spectators were also fantastic! Year 6 supported their peers, as well as cheering and congratulating the other teams, with such pride and enthusiasm and the support from parents and carers was overwhelming.
It was a fantastic morning which ended up with us clinching the top prize by 8 points.
A huge thank you to Mrs Rhodes and Mrs Wells, who made it possible with all the hard work they have put into teaching swimming at Upland.
