Our school participated in the Santa Claus Swim Cup, held at the American International School on 5th December.

It was a friendly swim meet for invited schools for swimmers between ages 8-11. Events were mixed gender so boys and girls were awarded together in two different age groups.

Britannica was represented by 9 great swimmers including Xenia Y7A, Giulia Y6 Tyne, Anna Y5 Teme, Man Ni Y5 Teme, Mihaela Y5 Teme, Zsófi Y3 Stour, Olivers Y5 Thames, Alexey Y6 Tyne and Noel Y5 Teme. They were super enthusiastic and achieved excellent results.

There were 7 events, 3 on 50m and 4 on 25m. We finished with two mixed relay races, one on freestyle and one on medley.

Our swim team did a brilliant job and won 12 medals all together.
