On Monday 7th March 2022 our Whinless Down Academy Gala Swimmers had the opportunity to train at The Duke of Yorks School ready for the Dover School Games Swimming Gala on Thursday 10th March 2022. The pupils were able to rehearse their set race, work out their relay order and train with the swimming instructors at SafelySwim. The pupils were fantastic during the swimming training and the session certainly helped to boost our pupils confidence.
