In December 2019 trials were held at Isleworth swimming pool to select a swimming team to represent Nelson Primary School at the Richmond Schools Swimming Gala, which is to be held on the 11th Feb 2020 at Richmond. The Nelson swimmers have been taking part in regular training sessions at Isleworth Swimming pool (funded by the PTA) and have all shown great determination and skill. Today in recognition of their hard work and selection into the Nelson Swimming Team the following children have each been awarded a Sports Star badge by the school. The team selected to represent Nelson Primary School at the Richmond Borough Primary Schools swimming gala 2020 are:
Y6: Sadie and Ishaq.
Y5 : Elsie, Amelie, Ege, Ria and Katy.
Y3: Lola and Alfie.
Reserves: Sorcha Y6, Florence and Sophia,
Y5: Amir and Riley, Year 3.
We wish the team the very best of luck in the Gala on the 11th of February. If you are a strong swimmer or have any club or competitive experience we would like to hear from you as we will shortly be considering entries for the 2021 team. Please speak to either Mr Abbott or Mrs Lewis 5LC.
