On Friday 19th April, we participated in the charity event Swim a Mile with a Smile. The weeks coming up to the swim we got a sponsorship card. We raised money for the charity and all the money is going towards Barretstown and Crumlin Hospital. On the Friday we got the bus to the National Aquatic Centre where we were going to swim a mile. Some girls got into teams and they swam a mile together. I and other girls swam the mile on our own. A mile is 64 lengths of the Aquatic centre pool. It wasn't as bad as we thought it was going to be and it was good fun. After this we went to Blanchardstown where we had lunch. It was a really fun day and we raised a lot of money for a worthwhile cause.
