On Wednesday 9th November 2016, 12 children from years 4, 5 and 6 took part in the annual DLP Swimming Gala, held at Dawlish Leisure Centre.
Firstly, the children had to compete in individual events, including breaststroke, backstroke and front crawl, later followed by three relays where they worked as a team swimming a length each whilst holding onto balls and floats. The races were all very close!
The children all showed excellent sportsmanship and team spirit and were extremely loud when cheering on the rest of the Exminster team.
We came 3rd, only 8 points behind the winning team. A huge congratulations must go to all 12 children for stepping up to the challenge and giving it their all.
Georgia: "It was fun and a little bit nerve racking at the same time. This was because it was scary as you could let your team down. None of us let the school down though."
