CHAMPIONS: The victorious pupils from East Bierley First School

EAST Bierley pupils swam their way to success at the annual first schools gala at Spen Pool.

The school took top honours for relay, breast-stroke and front crawl, earning them the title of girls’ champions as well as overall champions.

Ten primary and first schools took part and the races included boys and girls’ breast stroke, front crawl, back crawl, freestyle and relay

Headteacher Marcus Newby said: “I was immensely proud of all who took part and those who push themselves every week to be their best.

“Winning is great but it was also good to see how supportive all schools, staff, pupils and their parents were of one another.

“It was a real testament to the group of schools’ commitment to working together.”
