Five year olds swim a mile

Star Swimmers at half term crash course

Five year old swims a mile

Alice (5) swims a mile

The half term crash course at Shirley Pool was an outstanding success with nine children swimming a mile or more on the final day.

Rosie-Mei Dolman (5) swims a mile

Most notable were the two five year olds Rosie Mei Dolman and Alice Mehaffey who used a variety of strokes to knock out the 64 lengths in a little more than an hour. It is not the youngest to swim a mile at the pool. Oliver Dunne completed the mile – aged just 4.

Every class had a star swimmer, not least the soggy teachers who battled with colds and fatigue to keep smiling through the week. Well done everyone!
