St Francis College Gala – where everyone wins!
The annual St Francis College swimming gala on 7th March took place at the amazing Liquid Lines facility in Cape St Francis.
Children of all levels of competency got to participate in the initial Splash In Gala for all Grade 0 to 2 pupils. Although no points are scored for the Splash-In events, each child regardless of age or competence is assured of an opportunity to take part. Then all the children get behind their houses with war cries and chants for the Inter House Gala which followed. The graded swimmers who were all pre-timed to ensure they were competing in completely fair competition swam their hearts out for precious house points.
The winning house of the day was the Yellowtails House, followed by The Red Romans in second place and Musselcrackers a brave third. Congratulations – there were some great swims on the day and certainly a lot of fun! Mr Franzl Bause, Headmaster of St Francis College, thanked Liquid Lines for their professional hosting and complimented the pupils on their ‘never say die’ attitude as well as the humility shown by the top swimmers. The decision made last year to allocate every Tuesday in the summer to swimming has been a resounding success.
A very big vote of thanks must go to Maria and her dedicated team at Liquid Lines for facilitating this for us and to all the College staff for their hard work in organising this very successful event.
