Northfield School Panathlon Swimming Team Take Part in the National Final Team Event

Six members of Northfield School Panathlon Swimming team travelled to London on Monday 25th November.
While staying overnight, and despite the inclement weather, we visited a number of popular tourist attractions including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The journey by train and London Underground were a first experience for some of the students and added to their experience.

The team took part in the National final team event on Tuesday 26th November 2019 where they were awarded an impressive overall 4th team place.

The competition comprised of 12 events, including 25 metre sprints, relays, 10 metre sprints, push  and glide, raft race, slam dunk and treasure hunt.

Our team was selected from year 7,8 and 9 students and were:

Grace Llewelyn
Emily Murray
Lily Baker
Josh Butler
Hamish Rae and
Oliver Lakey

All performed incredibly well and were a credit to the school.
