Nursery Children Enjoy First Fishy Swimming Gala

Children at Kidderminster’s Little Trinity Nursery were delighted when they received swimming certificates and medals after taking part in their first Nursery Swimming Gala. Competing in four teams, Sharks, Dolphins, Jellyfish and Starfish, the children swam a mixture of widths and lengths of the pool, to the delight of family members shouting support from the pool balcony. Little Trinity Nursery is based within the grounds of Holy Trinity School and offers nursery children, from the age of 2-years, weekly swimming lessons in the school’s pool for children to learn how to swim. Nursery Manager, Miss Gaynor Carter, said: “Swimming is a much loved activity in the nursery week, so it is tremendously rewarding to see how self-assured and confident in the water the children have all become, with the end of the year swimming gala a lot of fun for all the children taking part, their families and for our staff who have worked so hard to support each child as they’ve learnt to swim.” Swimming in a number of different fun-packed races, team Sharks were eventually crowned the overall swimming gala winner. Added Miss Carter: “Parents appreciate seeing their children so excited and overjoyed at taking part in their first ever swimming gala. “There were lots of cheers, smiles and rivers of happy tears and what a fantastic time we all had. The children were wonderful; well done to all!”
