The RPCC Charity Swimming Gala/Swimathon was held on Thursday 21st March 2019. This was a showcase of our incredibly committed and resilient students. We had a target to complete 1000 lengths in the day (20,000m/12.25 miles), each year group getting 35 minutes to do as many as possible – we may have misjudged our target! We absolutely smashed it. Each year group completed:
Year 7 – 1,224 lengths (15.21 miles)
Year 8 – 403 lengths (5 miles)
Year 9 – 659 lengths (8.2 miles)
Total – 2286 lengths (28.41 miles)
A huge well done and thank you to all that took part and the PE Champions who counted all those lengths – well over the distance across the channel to France!
