Omar Swimming Competition Boys and Girls 2020
The Omar memorial swimming competition was held on the 10th of February for boys and the 11th for girls. This is the fourth consecutive year this competition has been held. In the first year of the competition students of KNES participated against each other. The following two years we invited 1 school to participate in the event. This year we invited three schools Bayan Bilingual School, Gulf English School, and Cambridge English School to participate in the boy’s event. In the girls event we had to guests participating this year Cambridge English School and Gulf English School.
The competition is growing in stature and we hope on improving every year. Parents from all schools participating were invited and attendance of those parents supporting their children was particularly pleasing. There was over 15 events/races on both days and medals were given out to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes in the respected races. Winners were given the opportunity to stand on a podium and receive a medal by the director of the school Madam Chantel Al Gharabally.
The event as a whole was a success and the swimmers give their all to represent their school in the best way possible. I would like to thank all parents for attending the event and supporting their children. We hope to have more successful events like this looking forward.
