Kent Medley Champions



Walthamstow Hall Junior School


Kent Primary School Swimming Relay Championships 2016




Our Year 6 girls comprising of Elspeth Watson, Rachel Hall, Maisy Hill and Charlotte Carr swam in the Kent Primary School Relay Championships on Saturday 12th March at Medway Park, Gillingham. 


This proved to be an exciting and thrilling competition for all involved. Firstly the girls competed in the 4 x 25mtr Freestyle Relay and then the 4 x 25mtr Medley Relay. These events were swum in different categories with Walthamstow Hall categorised as a medium sized school and therefore competing in the mixed relays comprising of both boys and girls teams. Walthamstow Hall performed outstandingly, firstly in the Freestyle Relay finishing 3rd out of 15 schools behind St Christoph and New Beacon. The girls had to wait patiently for confirmation of this result whilst officials finalised the positions of a very closely fought contest with less than 0.1 separating 2nd, 3rd and 4th places.  In the Medley Relay this was just as close and Walthamstow Hall became Medley Relay Champions in the medium schools category (both boys and girls) as well as posting the overall best time in this event out of all 46 Kent schools entered to compete.


Congratulations to all the girls who took part and being able achieving so much at these championships. In addition by winning the Medley Relay event Walthamstow Hall has qualified for the South East Regional School Championships which will be held on the 23rd April.


Also a Special thanks to Alison Carr who assisted pool side and everyone who came along to watch and support the girls during the competition.  


Congratulations Team Wally Hall we are very proud of you.
