Claire successfully completed the course to bring home the Senior Ladies Silver, whilst Blythe was awarded the Junior Girls’ Gold.

The duo decided to tackle the gruelling challenge of the mile-long River Tay swim to help raise funds for the Goedgeacht Trust, which the School recently visited during the rugby and hockey tour of South Africa in summer. Traditionally beginning at the Bridgeview Station restaurant, it was a self-navigated point to point swim on the ebb of the tide, finishing at the slipway behind the Discovery Point.

Based in Cape Town, the Goedgeacht Trust’s aim is to develop “a creative, effective, sustainable and replicable model for community development in rural areas, and offers children and youths safe spaces and opportunities to break out of the cycle of poverty that have trapped their families for generations.”

A huge well done to both Blythe and Claire!
