On Thursday 7th March, 11 students (from across year 7, 8 and 9) were selected to take part in the Redbridge Borough Swimming Gala. This was held at Fullwell Cross Swimming Pool and events were competed for by 9 schools.
Loxford students were entered individually into the backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and butterfly races. Each year group was also entered as a team into the freestyle relay (with year 9’s also competing in the medley relay).
The students involved displayed excellent sportsmanship and effort throughout the gala. Two particular highlights were Samay in year 7, who swam a superb heat in both the backstroke and freestyle events,finishing first in both heats. Safee also finished first in his heat for year 9 breaststroke.
The PE department would like to wish them, and all that took part, huge congratulations.
