Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together



Broadfield has competed in the swimming competition three years in a row now. We have a team made up of eight children from Years 4, 5 and 6. 


The children have had three practice sessions where it was decided which strokes they would be doing in the competition. They also practiced the different relays and the order in which they would go.


The races included:

Back stroke

Front crawl

Breast stroke


Relay (one back stroke, one front crawl, one breast stroke and one freestyle)

Relay freestyle

Relay mixed (boys and girls together)


At the competition, the races were swam in two heats and Broadfield swam in the second.

Aliyah and Zain finished second in their individual heats which were front and freestyle crawl.

Daniel came first in his heat, he swam front crawl.


Each child swam better than ever before. Broadfield is very proud of all their hard work and commitment. This year's swimmers were the most talented group out of all the three years.
