Penpol Swim to Success

The swimmers from Penpol enjoyed success in the pool at the Penwith School’s Gala a fortnight ago.

After a two year hiatus due to the pandemic it was wonderful to see a return to competitive swimming and boy did the children love it. Penpol topped the medal table finishing with 60 points over all; a monstrous 15 its above silver place.

All individual teams medalled as well with Yr 5 girls, Yr 6 boys and Yr 6 girls all picking up silver medals and the Yr 5 boys collecting gold.

The medal haul however wasn’t the most impressive outcome fore the day; that was the way in which the children carried themselves throughout the afternoon, showing exceptional levels of sportsmanship and fair play. They certainly did themselves and us as a school very proud.
