Jubilee Swimming Gala

Children from Forms 4, 5 and 6 sparkled in the swimming pool at an inter-school gala held on Tuesday evening.

Children representing All Saints, Ashlands, Askwith, Ben Rhydding, Burley Woodhead, Ghyll Royd, Menston and Westville House got together at Ilkley Swimming Pool for an inter-schools Jubilee Swimming Gala. 

The children competed in all four swimming strokes, a medley and a relay.

Ashlands took home the trophy for the best boys team and the trophy for the best swimming team, which combined the boys and girls results, went to Westville House.

Coaches, organisers, parents and staff were all impressed by the standard of swimming and sportsmanship they had seen.
