Nursery Swimming Gala Fun

Children at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster had an amazing time showing parents their swimming skills as they took part in their first Nursery Swimming Gala.

With the younger children from the age of 3-years and upwards showing their swimming skills and how to use floats in the pool, they competed in four teams; Jellyfish, Sharks, Starfish and Dolphins, swimming widths of the pool and jumping in at the deep end to swim the full pool length to the enjoyment of their families who shouted support from the pool balcony.

Using the swimming skills they’d learnt as part of their weekly swimming lessons, the children enjoyed the positive experience of competing and racing against each other, with all children presented with a certificate for participating, and an engraved medal and the winning team awarded the trophy!

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter, said: “As we approach the end of this academic year our swimming gala always provides great fun for the children, their families and for our staff who have worked so hard to support each child as they’ve learnt to swim throughout the year. Swimming is much-loved part of our nursery week, so it’s hugely rewarding to see how confident and self-assured they have all become in the water.”

Swimming in several different fun-packed races, team Dolphins was crowned the overall swimming gala winner.

Added Gaynor: “Parents really appreciate being able to see their children so excited and overjoy taking part in their first swimming gala.

“There were lots of cheers, smiles and happy tears, and what a fantastic time we all had. Well done to everyone!”
