Inter-house Swimming Gala
Crossroads Inter-house Swimming Gala took place on Thursday the 19 March 2015. All our learners had an opportunity to participate in the gala, whether it was in fun races or more competitive races, or being active supporters, they were all super stars. One of our learners Roman Boulton has a keen interest in photography, so we optimised on his talent, and “hired” him for the gala. Our parents even got a bit wet this year, thanks to the light drizzle on the day. This is just another indication of our parents love and commitment to their children and Crossroads School, come rain or shine.

This year The Venus house took first place with a score of 121, followed by Mars with 106 points and close behind them was Pluto scoring 102. Congratulations of all our swimmers for doing your best and having fun at the same time. A special congratulations goes to this year’s Victor Ludorum, Marco Guerra and Victrix Ludorum, Kiara Oellermann.
