High Down Junior School from Portishead, retained its North Somerset swimming title.

HIGH Down Junior School’s swimming team took the journey to Hutton Moor to take part in the North Somerset PE Association annual swimming gala.

The Portishead swimmers, from Year 5 and 6, were excited and looking forward to seeing their opponents.

Competing against 12 other schools from across North Somerset, they got stuck in and seemed to come second in lots of the early races before stepping up a gear and winning four in a row.

Every member of the team gave their best for the team, which paid off as they were announced the winners. That squad retained the shield for the school and each gained a gold medal.
