“A credit to Stockport Grammar Junior School”

Swimming teacher Ms Jo Pepper was delighted with our swimmers:

I’m really proud of all our swimmers – they all swam really well.

Special mention and thanks must go to the manner in which all the pupils conducted themselves throughout the afternoon. They were a true pleasure to watch and a credit to Stockport Grammar Junior School!

Thanks also to the three parents who kindly transported the children and supported the event.

5km charity swim

Ms Pepper will be in the pool herself when she joins Ms Kristy Franklin in leading a team of staff in a 5km swim on 12th May.
