Beech Hall pupils see swimming in a new light

Glowsticks and goggles were the order of the night as the school's pupils, parents and staff enjoyed an after-dark dip at MediaCityUK

Beech Hall School pupils, parents and staff recently donned glow sticks, goggles and swimwear for a highly memorable challenge.   

The group from the Tytherington-based school swam for up to a mile as part of the open water Neon Swim event, in the magically-lit Dock 9 at MediaCityUK. 

A DJ and club-style lighting provided a backdrop for the swimmers, making for a high-energy atmosphere and supporting the event’s emphasis on having fun and enjoying the occasion. 

Headmaster at Beech Hall, James Allen, commented: “Everyone involved thoroughly enjoyed the Neon Swim, and took away with them lasting memories of a personal achievement, and a fabulous night. We are very fortunate to have our own swimming pool at the school; however, swimming in the dark to trendy tunes and lit up by glowsticks was another experience entirely!”
