Sacred Heart mum and swimming coach Sarndra Petrin writes in about the North Island Secondary Schools Swimming experience. 

The weekend of 12th May, I took four Sacred Heart students away to Palmerston North for North Island Secondary Schools Swimming.  All four students performed well in their races ranging from sprints to long distance.


We had fantastic results across the board, with all four girls in the top ten for their age group. We entered into both relays, fourth in Freestyle and eighth in the medley.  It was a pleasure being their manager.
