Oakwood Swimming Stars!
Clutching their swimming bags and drinks, 45 very excited Year 5 Oakwood Primary Academy children skipped into the Life Centre for their reward celebrity session on Wednesday 19th October 2016.
This reward came as a result of our school earning the award for the ‘Most Improved School’ in the Life Centre’s well-respected swimming programme across Plymouth 2015-16. The prize was an invitation to attend the Swim Stars event hosted by double gold medal Olympic champion, Beccy Adlington, along with our local Olympic divers, Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow.
It was such a great morning with all children engaged in swimming, CPR training and sampling the giddy heights of the diving platforms. TV cameras, interviews and medals all helped to make this an event to remember for all the children. The celebrities were so welcoming to the children and signed autographs and answered questions about their childhood and achievements. The whole 50m pool was used to accommodate other local schools and adult exercise groups which showed off the Life Centre at its busiest (and noisiest!). This kind of event can only encourage children to take to the water and develop their swimming skills to produce yet more Olympians. The event was featured on BBC Spotlight that evening and the Oakwood children featured prominently in the televised report!
Thank you Life Centre and well done Year 5!
