Project Oarsome End of Year Regatta - 10/07/2017

The regatta was an opportunity for pupils to put all of the skills they have learned this year into practice. Students took part in different heats against peers from seven other Warrington High Schools with the winners going through to the final. The UAW boy’s quad with Keira coxing won both races to claim the gold medal.

Mr Taylor said ‘the regatta was wonderful evening for staff, students and parents from all of the competing schools to come and celebrate the progress made this year on the project. All of the students performed amazingly on the day and were a credit to themselves and the school. The boys and Keira were incredible and deservedly won the gold medal in the quads race.’

Sam Brown added ‘the competition was a great opportunity to show the other teams and our parents what we have learned this year. Winning the gold medal was a great achievement and made all the hard work in training worthwhile.’
