The annual Merton Primary School Swimming Gala Heat 3 was held on Tuesday 24th May 2016 at Morden Park Pools. Heat’s 1 and 2 were previously held the week before on Tuesday 17th May 2016. Swimmers took part in various events; backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and relay races. Fewer schools attended this heat compared to heat 1 and 2; however the cheering from those schools that attended didn’t show it.

Well done to all students who attended as they swam their hearts out, finishing with some very impressive times. The results have now been gathered from all 3 heats and schools will find out whether their pupils have qualified through to the finals very shortly. A big thank you to all the schools that took part and for assessing their swimmers prior to the event. Also a big thank you to the year 8 sports leaders from Rutlish School for timing all the races.
