Swim Success!

The Portmarnock Community School swimming team put on an impressive performance at the Newpark Swimming Gala on Thursday. In the 6-School competition, our 25 student-strong team entered nearly every event, with 1st Year, 2nd Year, 3rd Year, and senior students participating in frontcrawl, backcrawl, and breastroke events, as well as relays. Students took home 33 gold medals, 27 silvers, and 9 bronze to finish in 2nd place overall, placing just after the host school, winning 9 individual races and most of the junior and senior relays. The day finished out with some fun relays, where all members of the team got a chance to show off their skill.

A big congratulations to the whole team from Mr O’Brien and Ms. Gallagher!
