Sharks Shiver!

On Saturday 10 January 2015, our sharks entered the pool in a fun team gala, the first of its kind here at St Chris. 60 of our swimmers were put into teams and battled it out in the water. The teams were named; the Whale Sharks, the Tiger Sharks and the Great White Sharks. The teams were led by our capable Senior School students, who took on the demanding role of organising swimmers, making sure they were in their events, and of course cheering for support. Each swimmer swam four events, gaining points for their team. The climax of the event were the relays, medley and freestyle, where cheers of support echoed around the pool deck, in the last chance to gain points to go towards the trophy.

Swim no 1
