Scottish Schools Swimming Championship

swimming

Anna Macfarlane (P7B) represented Blackhall Primary on Saturday 26th January at The Scottish Schools Championship in East Kilbride.

Anna and some of our other pupils had participated in the Edinburgh Schools Gala, and she had been selected to participate at national level.

Not only did she beat her personal best for Butterfly – twice during the competition – but she moved from 9th ranking in her age group (at National level) to come 4th in the final!
We are all extremely proud of Anna and will be watching her progress over the next few years.
