This week saw a return of the Penwith School’s Swimming Gala at Penzance Leisure Centre. As a school we sent 31 swimmers who took part in individual events as well as relays. These events included front crawl, backstroke, breast stroke and even butterfly. Out of the 20 schools that competed, Penpol finished 6th in both the Year 3/4 and 5/6 events. A record finish for our school.
