The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

ONE pri­mary school dom­i­nated a re­cent swim­ming gala in the Deep­ings, tak­ing the ma­jor­ity of the sil­ver­ware up for grabs.

Deep­ing St James Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School has a bulging tro­phy cab­i­net af­ter suc­cess in a re­cent tour­na­ment.

The young­sters were com­pet­ing in the Bourne and Deep­ings Swim­ming Gala on Thurs­day, April 19.

The event was held at the Deep­ings Leisure Cen­tre, in Park Road, Deep­ing St James.

The young­sters put in an out­stand­ing ef­fort and took home three of the four tro­phies avail­able from the com­pe­ti­tions.

Head­teacher Ian Wilkinson said: “The chil­dren swam bril­liantly and won three out the four tro­phies against six other schools.

“Eli­jah Daw­son did par­tic­u­larly well and won his in­di­vid­ual race in the 25-me­tre freestyle.

“We are very proud of all their achieve­ments.”

The school claimed the Year 3 and 4 girls’ tro­phy along with the Year 3 and 4 boys’ cup.

The Year 5 and Year 6 boys’ tro­phy was also claimed by the Deep­ing St James Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School pupils.

The Year 5 and 6 girls were un­lucky to be the only group with­out a cup but came a very highly placed third.
