Sussex swam to success for our 50th Anniversary Swimming Gala!

The weather was in our favour for our annual inter-House Swimming Gala and our students once again dove straight in!

Our traditional whole school Swimming Gala event has been a long-standing (or should we say swimming) tradition at Slindon College, which marks its 50th Anniversary in 2022.

Although the main principles of the Gala have remained the same, each era of the school has added its own nautical flare which have even included fancy dress elements! 

For the 50th Swimming Gala, however, we have pitted our Houses; Cowdray, Norfolk, Richmond and Sussex, against each other in various aquatic challenges! 

With a huge turnout from our wonderful and supportive parents, and with a glorious raffle, flower sale and bake sale provided by our Friends of Slindon College (FoSC);  this was an excellent way to round off the first half of the term and the fact that the sun was shining brightly meant the day was enjoyed by everyone, including those cheering on the competitors!


A huge well done to all those who took part, particularly to Sussex House who soared to success, winning the inter-house relay for the 50th Anniversary year! Mr Relf, Head of Sussex House said:

"I'm very proud of our Sussex team who showed commitment and teamwork throughout!"

The event was organised by our PE teacher, Mr Belcher who said:

"I'm thrilled to have been able to carry on this fantastic tradition at Slindon College as part of the 50th Anniversary year. Thank you to all the staff, parents and students who helped make it happen."
