Year 6 swimmers travelled to King Henry's School on Thursday 5 May for a long awaited and rescheduled gala against Eversfield, Balsall Common and Bablake King Henrys. All the swimmers were very excited to get into the pool and represent Crescent and they did not disappoint with each student swimming their heart out whilst being encouraged and motivated by their team mates on the side lines.
"Everybody swam exceptionally well, trying their hardest and doing the school proud.
With Crescent finishing in 2nd place for the Year 6 competition. "
Swim Captains Stephanie and Caspar
Well done to all, you were a pleasure to be with and a credit to the school.

Swimming Captain, Stephanie has written a full report:
On Thursday the 5th of May, 12 of the year six pupils took part in a swimming gala at KHB against: KHB, Balsall Common and Eversfield Preparatory School.
This gala required four boys and four girls from both year five and six. Unfortunately for us, our year five teams were away (having a brilliant time) on their residential, meaning we were two teams short when it came to overall points.
In the year six girls team we had Katherine, Sophie, Steph, and Harriet. Katherine and Harriet both swam brilliantly, coming close second in the backstroke and freestyle races. Sophie and Steph both won their races, Sophie in the breaststroke and Steph in the butterfly. All outstanding results for the year six girls team.
Our second Year 6 girls representatives pushed themselves to their limits to gain our team even more points, with another impressive result. They really gave it their all, with Liana swimming in the backstroke coming third in a very close heat, and Sophia, Evie and Eva all coming second in the Butterfly, Breaststroke and Freestyle races.
The year six boys races were also incredibly tight heats, showing the fantastic overall performance of the school. Ro swam very well in the Breaststroke, Caspar in the Butterfly both finishing in 2nd place with Sachin in the Freestyle and Faris in the Backstroke coming home home 3rd, all scoring valuable points for the team.
We started and ended the day with the best bit – relays! There is always such a good atmosphere and team spirit, as everyone cheers their teams on throughout. Crescent came second and third in these helping us to place second overall.
A big thank you to everyone who participated in this gala, all of our swimmers did Crescent School proud.
