A huge well done to all the St Joseph’s pupils who competed at the prestigious ISA National Swimming Championships in London on Saturday 30th November 2019. All those who represented the school at the inspiring setting of the London Aquatic Centre, home of the 2012 London Olympic swimming competition, had won through the ISA South West qualifiers. It was wonderful that seven St Joseph’s pupils travelled to the Olympic Pool to participate.
Just representing the school, and the South West, is a real honour and an accomplishment for every child. Congratulations to Year 8 pupil Olivia who came away with two fantastic medals: a bronze medal for the 50m breaststroke and a silver medal for 50m backstroke!
All of our pupils swam brilliantly with excellent first time swims in the Olympic pool, a setting that will certainly inspire them to every faster times as they continue their swimming. A great accomplishment for Rhys, Joseph and Rosie, and an event that saw new personal bests for Hollie, Louisa and Thomas.
Well done to all of the St Joseph’s swimmers for representing Cornwall and the South West with pride – a great achievement.
