On Thursday 5th July this annual event took place at
the South East Wales Regional Pool, Newport. The council has
witnessed 2000+ primary school children benefit from both our
intensive and weekly swimming instruction which has allowed them to
experience and develop a variety of aquatic skills in a positive
setting. This event is a celebration of all their achievements and
hard work within the City of Newport.
A total of 18 teams (200+ children) took part in the gala and
participated in a variety of team relay based activities including
Mini Water Polo, Woggle, kick boards and specific strokes. The
event was officially opened by his Right Worshipful the Mayor of
Newport, Cllr John Guy, with the eventual winners being Marshfield
Primary School. Congratulations to them!!
