EPSSA Swim Relay & Dive Gala

15 Dean Park pupils joined hundreds of other primary school children yesterday  at Edinburgh’s Royal Commonwealth Pool, to take part in the 2018 EPSSA Swim Relay and Dive Gala.

46 schools took part in the event which was open to club and non-club swimmers.

First up was the Breaststroke A Schools Relay with 32 schools competing. The Dean Park team (P7’s Beth, Isla and Iona and P6’s Harvey) made it into the final, only to be pipped into 4th place after a fantastic effort.

The Dean Park Backstroke A Schools Relay team (P5’s Rory and Aidan, P6’s Bryony and P7’s Josh) gave it their all and made 4th place in a very competitively fought heat.

Our Freestyle A Schools Relay team (P7’s Tom, Maddie, Cameron and P6’s Ellie) battled through to the final, in which they won a very close 2nd place in an incredibly narrow race.

Over at the diving pool, P7’s Amy and P6’s Georgina and Freya competed in the Girls’ Level 1 Diving competition.  A fantastic effort from the girls which saw Freya placed 5th and Amy 3rd.

A huge well done to all the Dean Park pupils who competed.
