Re­liev­ing prin­ci­pal Ruth Haynes said the weather was ‘‘per­fect’’ and praised the be­hav­iour and en­thu­si­asm of all in­volved.

‘‘These may have been to come first, sec­ond or third or just to fin­ish.

‘‘We had a full range of reg­u­lar swim­ming events, but also catered for the non­swim­mers with nov­elty events and Miss Lewis’ fun wa­ter play ac­tiv­i­ties to en­sure all the Un­der 8s could join in and en­joy the day.

‘‘School spirit is well and truly alive at Fin­ley Pub­lic with all stu­dents en­cour­ag­ing and cheer­ing ev­ery­one, not only those in their house group.’’
