DESS Crowned DASAA Aquathlon Champions 2019
A huge congratulations to all the Year 5 and Year 6 children who participated in the Aquathlon events this term and contributed to DESS’s amazing achievement of winning the Division 1 Aquathlon Championships.
Aquathlon is 10 lengths of swimming followed by a 1.5km run and is probably the most challenging event of the sporting calendar. We had podium finishes by Maddy Cassar (Year 5 Girls) and Billy Chatterjee (Year 5 Boys) in the first two rounds and some amazing personal bests from many of the competitors.
This was topped off by an explosive relay final which the Year 6 girls won and the Year 5 girls finished third.
Well done to everyone who participated and thank you to all the parents who came to cheer us on.
