09 Dec Uplands Preparatory Senior Phase Inter-House Gala
On 28th November, the Uplands Preparatory Senior Phase hosted an exciting and really fun Inter-House Gala. We were blessed with amazing weather, with temperatures in excess of 30’C which was more than ideal for an action-packed gala.
Our overall winners were Ogilvie House, with a combined score of 437.5 points after the pre-events and Junior gala combined. Fuller House, however, put up a strong fight to come in second with a total score of 390 and Webb House was in third place with a combined score of 350.5.
We are very proud of the Open Girls from Ogilvie who broke the 4 x 25m freestyle time – the only record at the Senior Primary gala. The old record was held by the 2015 Webb team (01:04.78). The new record of 1.02.55 was set by the following girls: Amy Ponting, Annabel Victor, Holleigh Johnstone and Sophie Greathead.
These swimmers were awarded the following trophies on the day:
Junior Victrix Ludorum: Liza Victor
Junior Victor Ludorum: Eduan Naudé
Senior Victrix Ludorum: Amy Ponting
Senior Victor Ludorum: Gabriel Buchanan and Marley Waspe
