GIS Garden vs Reps Swim


Garden International School (GIS) had another exciting swimming gala against REPS on November 27 and ended the year on a high as they won (179 points versus the 95 points that REPS scored).

There were three age groups taking part: Years 4 and 5; Years 6 and 7 and Years 8, 9 and 10. In the first age group the GIS girls won every race and both relays, once again proving themselves to be the strongest section. Jessica won three races with Ann winning the fourth one and our A relay team consisting of Jessica, Ann, Lily, Fiona and Inez won both their relays.

Jan, Issie and Chloe came second in both relays. The GIS boys in the same age group also swam well, with Pumin, William and David winning one race each. They were joined by Danai in the Medley Relay and his brother Direk in the Freestyle Relay which they both won. Lee, Austin, Alex, Benjamin and Jae Woo all contributed to victory in this section.

In the second age group, our girls won both their relays (Kamilla, Jessica, Shaniya, Radchel, Pygmy, Ellie, Sara and Miriam) whilst Shaniya and Ellie won their events. The boys’ team, consisting of Oliver, John, Simon, Ash and Sun swam well to win the Medley Relay with a second place in the Freestyle Relay.

GIS seniors did well against tough opposition: the girls – Coco, Gee-Gee and Berenice won both their relays with the help of Jessica. Coco was the only swimmer who thus won all four of her individual events and both relays. The senior boys (David, Jason, Teng and Jab) won their Medley Relay and Teng won the Breaststroke event.

Congratulations to all the swimmers who took part. Thanks also to our starter, Mr Lynch and Ms Lucy and Ms Jenn who kept the scores for us.
