On 13th November 2014, Akiva took part in the Annual Barnet Schools Swimming Gala at Copthall Leisure Centre. Our team of 14 students from years 4-6 led by Ms Papier and Mrs Wolf was competing against 24 Barnet schools. The schools were divided into two groups: those with more than 300 pupils and those with less.
It was an absolutely thrilling day for the children and for the parents spectating. The children won many of their individual races and finished with some very exciting relays. And best of all, for the first time in the history of Akiva school, we won! We received 2 awards: one for winning and the other for most improved school. The children were very excited to receive their medals and trophy from the Mayor of Barnet.
We have some amazing swimmers at Akiva and we are incredibly proud of them. Well done!
