On Friday 18th January, we went to Carn Brea Swimming Pool to compete in a swimming gala. At the event, we all swam to the roaring cheer of “LANDER!”  Everyone swam well but the relay teams gave a storming performance and  we returned with 2 trophies. Overall we came third and everyone felt proud as we returned to school.
