January Swim Squad Swim Trials
On Sunday 5 January, 32 students from the Junior School attended swim trials. Pupils were asked to complete a 100m warm up and then competed against the clock in races in the different strokes. While the pupils were racing the swim coaches were taking notes on technique, stroke rules and laws, as well as strengths and weaknesses of the swimmers.
Congratulations to the following pupils who have gained a place on St Christopher’s Swim Squad.

On Saturday 11 January the Senior School pupils also had the opportunity to enter the School Swim Squad. The expectations were higher and the students were asked to complete a 300m warm up, followed by timed races in all four strokes, followed by a 100m IM and finished with a continuous 10 minute swim to judge stamina.
Congratulations to Maud Tinsley, the only Senior School Student who managed to gain a place in the Senior School Swim Squad.
