On the 18th and 19th April, SportMalta held the annual swimming event for students attending State, Private and Church Secondary schools. Throughout the scholastic year, students have been encouraged to take part in the swimming programme for schools offered by SportMalta at Tal Qroqq National Pool.
A total of over hundred students took part in ten events during which they had the opportunity to demonstrate their skill ability in different swimming strokes acquired through long hours of hard training and sacrifice. Participating schools were: Naxxar MS, National Sports School, Cospicua MS, De La Salle College, Verdala International School, St Dorothy’s School, St Francis Sliema, St Monica School B’Kara and St Monica School Gzira.
This event was aimed at bringing together students from all educational sectors thus encouraging social inclusion and fostering schools’ ego and identity. It was also the ideal setting to identify skilled swimming athletes who could potentially develop their talent and thus pursue an athletic career.
This event was sponsored by Go & Fun.
