Great fun, medals and a first and two third places at our first Life Saving Competition!
On Sunday 6th March, twenty of our lifesavers entered a Rookie Lifeguard Festival hosted by Okehampton Otters at Okehampton Pool. We had a fantastic, fun-filled afternoon taking part in fun relays such as rescue tube, rope throwing, body board and a fashion show relay with a giant inflatable shoe!
We went along, unsure about what to expect from our first time competing against other clubs and came away delighted with our A team coming in first place and our B team coming third in the year 5 and 6 category!
Our year 3 and 4 team came third and also had silver medals for best team, along with our D team gaining bronze medals for best team.
All children who took part showed fantastic team work, enthusiasm and did Aqua Stars proud!
Winners! Luke, Libbie, Kieran and Holly with their Gold medals for winning the most races in the year 5 & 6 category.
Third Place: Megan, Milo, Alisha and Scott with their bronze medals for coming in third place in the year 5 & 6 category.
