Moira House Girls School headed up to Surrey last week for the GSA South Schools Swimming Gala at St Catherine’s School in Bramley.
Nineteen girls from Years 6 to 13 participated in this prestigious annual event.
The girls were only permitted to enter one individual event and the relays. The U13 team, mainly comprised of Year six girls swimming out of their age group, held their own to achieve an incredible sixth place out of nine schools.
The U15s excelled and came in second place behind St Catherine’s School, and the U19’s showed the way to win by their all-round ability in both the individual and relays events.
The final event was the squadron relay, the highlight of the evening schedule, where Moira House just touched in first place with an outstanding swim by Alice Greenland.
Overall Moira House achieved an accreditable second place by the end of the evening.
