GRENEWAY school's swimmers enjoyed a record breaking experience at the Hertfordshire Primary School's Swimming Relay Championships.

Competing against the top twenty primary schools for Swimming in Hertfordshire was always going to be a difficult competition for Greneway's year five and six teams, but the swimmers swam to the challenge to finish fifth overall.

The girls' team won a gold and silver in the consolation final, and the boys' team picked up a silver and bronze.
