YEAR 5/6 SWIMMING ESSEX FINALS
Our upper school Swim Squad made it to the Essex finals to represent Southend at Basildon Sports Village. There was an official opening ceremony and our school was chosen to carry the flag for Southend East in the parade.
They put in another valiant performance winning a bucket full of medals! They all behaved impeccably showing great sportsmanship and support for West Leigh School representing Southend in the Year 3/4 competition.
The results were close throughout the whole event with us leading the pack closely followed by Buttsbury School. We swam hard and fast, with everyone coming away with at least one medal. Our hopes were high but when the final results came in Buttsbury had just beaten us. They also won the Lower School competition so they are now the ones to beat next year!
Well done everyone, we are all so very proud of you.
