ISAC Swimming Championships 2012

Garden Swimmers – Another Glorious Victory!

On Saturday December 1st 2012, defending champions Garden International School secured another glorious victory at the 2012 ISAC Swimming Championship.

There was close competition in the primary session where GIS made their way through to the top by just 12 points. The secondary pupils continued the close battle and built upon the amazing work done by the primary children in the morning by ensuring GIS became the overall champions, 72 points ahead of runners up Alice Smith International School!

Despite missing several key members, we still managed to send 63 swimmers and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all participants for their great efforts and hard work. All the swimmers contributed to the incredible result where we won a total of 25 Golds, 23 Silvers and 21 Bronzes.

I would also like to thank all parents who gave up their Saturday and were at the poolside giving their full support which provided an amazing atmosphere. A huge thank you must also go to all PE staff and to the Year 12 CSLA students for making the meet a great success.

It has been an amazing start to the year and despite the many challenges we have faced during training due to adverse weather at key times, we have worked brilliantly as a team. I hope all Dragons swimmers will return in the New Year with renewed enthusiasm and the intention of doing the best they can across all competitions, meets and events.

Once again, well done to all swimmers. Enjoy your last few days and have a superb Christmas and New Year!

Mr. Allen Ong
Head Swim Coach
