Training for the National Schools Swimming Championships has been physically and emotionally draining for the swimmers. However, by the grace of God, constant encouragement from the teachers and the camaraderie between the team members, the swimmers have pulled through the tough times. As the competition draws to a close, we look back at our achievements, which are testament to the immense effort put in by us.

Born to Swim!
 
The team would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to our principal, vice-principals, teachers, coaches, parents and supporters for their prayers of blessing and support. Most importantly, we would like to thank God, without whom none of this would have been possible.

To God Be The Glory, The Best Is Yet To Be!
