The sun shone on the afternoon of Sunday 9 September, when 29 children successfully swam across the river at the bi-annual swim test. Having passed the swim test, children are then able to participate in kayak courses, and from Year 7 they can learn to skiff and punt. Hot chocolate and cupcakes were enjoyed by the swimmers afterwards.
Congratulations go to Johan Andrea, Jess Beazley, William Copland, Poppy Darlow, Blossom Darlow, Jocelyn Evans, Poppy Fletcher, Isabella Fletcher, Eva Goodall-Smith, Phoebe Hall, Jessica Harris, Joe Ingleby, Ellie Large, Matt Lattimer, Anna Lattimer, Susie Lawrence, Ryan Milnes, Skye Milnes, Seb Phillis, Alastair Phillis, Georgia Phillis, Emily Schutz, Sophie Simmonds, Henry Smith, Pippa Whittam, Lily Whittam, Barnaby Winters, Tuleen Ziadeh and Tala Ziadeh.
Thanks once again to the support team who made this event such a triumph. Wargrave Boating Club runs two swim tests each year, one in May and one in September
