FIVE Islington primary school children will be hoping to make a splash this Saturday when they take part in a national swimming competition at the Olympic pool in east London.

The Gower School children – Cy Sherliker, 10, Martha Denby, 9, Persephone Holloway, 11, Seren Millar, 8, and Sidney Gruber, 9, (pictured above from left to right) – all struck gold in the north London regional heats.

Their success saw them selected to swim in the Independent Schools Association National Swimming Gala at the London Aquatics Centre this weekend.

Emma Gowers, principal at the Barnsbury school, said: “I wish them all the very best of luck. We are very proud of them indeed.”
