Report for IAPS Swimming regional rounds held at Stamford
On Thursday 11th February, I was proud to take ten NHIJS pupils to represent the school in the regional rounds of a national swimming competition for independent schools. This year’s closest regional round was held at Stamford School; 32 regional rounds are held all around the country with 3,000 swimmers participating in total. The top 16 fastest swimmers qualify for the individual finals and the top 12 relay teams are selected for the national IAPS Finals at K2, Crawley on Saturday 7th May, 2016. There were10 schools taking part in the Stamford round but the boys knew that it was all against the stopwatch. All of the pupils swam exceedingly well and should be proud of their efforts in the face of strong competition. Many gained personal best times and all were proud of their achievements. It was a pleasure to take all 10 pupils on the trip. They were a credit to themselves and the school. We look forward to hearing how they performed when all the results are in from the regional rounds in the Summer Term.
Sahibdeep for the effort that he has put into his Geography work – independent research and enthusiasm.
