We have had an exciting start to this term with lots of good swimming happening. With TEAM OAKLANDS taking part in two Lothian Disability Sports Swimming Galas. In Mercat Gait Leisure Centre, Prestonpans.
We were delighted at being given the opportunity to participate. Seam Smiles, Cameron Orr and Ben Holmes represented the school at these events. We spent several weeks practicing for it in our weekly swimming sessions at Ainslie Park. All our swimmers swam 25m in an aided race.
The first race was Ben in the 25m freestyle. He did well, with an entry time of 02.10.46. With lots of encouragement from the other participants, all of whom were chanting his name he managed to get a new PB. Next up were Cameron and Sean with their parents up in the gallery cheering them on both boys swam well. They too had the whole of the other participants cheering them on and chanting their names.
This was a brilliant achievement and all three boys were proud of their medals. We are looking forward to our next event in November. Well done to everyone taking part and a big thank you to Oliver and Amy for all their support and giving up their time at a weekend.
