PUPILS at Ghyll Royd School in Burley-in-Wharfedale, are celebrating the U11s girls' swimming team taking first place at the recent annual Primary School Jubilee Swimming Gala.

Organised jointly by Ilkley Grammar School and Ilkley Swimming Club the gala was attended by children from a number of local primary schools, competing in all four strokes, including a medley and relay.

Mr David Martin, head teacher, said: "The girls are delighted to have won first place. They have worked very hard both in their school swimming lessons and at their respective swimming clubs to be in excellent shape for the competition. The boys team also swam very well and thanks to their hard work too we are also thrilled to have secured second place overall."
