We Care to Challenge

Swim Britain"Life begins at the edge of your

 comfort zone"


On Sunday 7th September 8 members of Wavell staff dived out of their comfort zone and into a new challenge, Swim Britain’s Open Water Swim at Blenheim Palace.

Never having completed anything like it before, the early morning training swims at the Quays lake before school during the Summer Term helped to prepare them for the challenge that lay ahead.


Split into two teams of four, the relay involved each team member swimming 250m four times along with over 100 other teams. Mrs Greenwood (Science technician) led the ladies team while Mr Greaves, aptly Head of Aqua House, led the men all sporting purple, green, pink or blue caps to identify their position in the relay.


The sunshine helped to tempt all into the water and before long the two teams were celebrating their success, invigorated and proud of  what they had achieved. Well done to you all!
