Four Charleston Academy pupils attended the annual Highland Schools Swimming Gala at Inverness Leisure on Wednesday. The event acts as a qualifying round for the Scottish Schools Finals which will be held in January at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow. Later in the year it will also host the swimming action of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Every year Charleston Academy is represented by a small but successful team. This year was no exception and all pupils achieved podium finishes or personal bests. Erica Fowler and I will now go on to represent Charleston Academy at the Scottish Schools Finals next year.
