Youngsters from a Dorset multi-academy trust made waves when they took part in their annual swimming gala.
The gala saw 40 children in Years 3 to 6 take part in a variety of races, both individual and relay.
CEO of Heath Academy Trust, Justine Horn, said: “It was wonderful to bring all the children from our different schools together in this way.
“Our pupils had the opportunity to work as teams in the relay races and some accomplished swimmers were able to shine in the individual events.
“It was also wonderful to see family and friends come out to cheer the children on.”
Heath Academy Trust comprises of six first and primary schools in East Dorset.
As well as St Ives Primary, the Trust also includes Three Legged Cross First, Oakhurst First in West Moors, St Mary’s First in West Moors, St James First in Alderholt, and Sixpenny Handley First schools.
Participants from each school competed in the gala, with hosts St Ives finishing overall winners.
The Heath Academy Trust supports an enriched curriculum to inspire children at all its schools to apply their learning skills outside of formal school lessons.
Its sporting programme, including swimming, supports pupils to achieve as a team and individually.
