ISA London North Swimming Gala

On Monday 20 November Coopersale Hall School took part in the ISA London North Area Swimming Gala, held at the Copthall Sports Centre Barnet.

After battling through the Monday morning rush hour traffic, everyone needed something to make it all worthwhile.  The pupils’ hard work and determination really paid off, and overall the school managed to win medals in six different events. An incredible result!

“On Monday 20 November, Coopersale Hall swimming team had a marvellous day at the Barnet I.S.A. Swimming Gala winning gold, silver and bronze medals.  I am so proud of the whole team each and every one of them tried so hard and some were even victorious.  Kimaya took a gold, there were two girls relay teams and both teams won gold. The boys relay team got a bronze medal and I won two golds and a silver.  Even though some didn’t win a medal they still pushed themselves to the limit and performed very well.  Overall we came fifth out of a lot of schools.  On the way back I could see everyone was very tired but so happy.

Thank you to Mr Robinson for organising this trip and supporting us and to Mrs Boultwood who was cheering us along the whole time.  Also a very big thank you to the care takers for driving us.”  Arwen
