Boys Enjoy Swim Tour to Malta
Friday, 04 November 2011
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 it all!
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.
