Over the half term holiday twenty one Bolton School boys headed
off to Malta for a full week of intense swim training!
The boys, from Year 8 up to Year 11, were accompanied on the
swim tour by PE staff Mr Howard, Mr Windsor and Mr Hughes, who put
them through their paces with two 2 hour swim sessions a day. Their
days involved waking up at 6am to a healthy breakfast, followed by
a 2 mile walk to the national stadium swimming pool. It wasn't all
hard work though as the boys then had free time and a leisurely
lunch before returning to the pool for their afternoon session.
The evenings were dedicated to fun activities, including bowling
and a movie night, and the boys also had time off in the day to
explore the local area and shops, visit the Malta Experience, take
a boat tour around Valletta, and watch the premier league football
in the movie room! Although the trip was intense, the weather was
fantastic and there were many fun times - the boys really enjoyed
The trip was a great success and will definitely go ahead again
in the future. All the boys gained a great amount of fitness and
vastly improved on their swimming skills.
