Nelson Swim Sports

On Sunday 8 April, 5 students from Appleby attended the Nelson Tasman Primary School Swimming Champs.  Representing our school were Kaylen Park, Charlie Bright, Paige Clarke, Mia Cliffe and Sophie Pahl.

There was a huge crowd and it was quite a daunting experience to be at such a big swim meet with so many competitors from across the region.  There were some fantastic swims and records were broken.  Our swimmers performed very well, with Kaylen Park achieving our best placing of 7th overall in the Y5 & under 25m Breastroke, and being awarded a ribbon. Well done Kaylen!

Pictured is our freestyle relay team of Mia, Paige and Sophie.  We borrowed a swimmer from Wakefield School to complete our team of four. We are very grateful to Ursula Oakes for her awesome team spirit in helping us make a team!
