Water polo goes from strength to strength

Five QE boys helped the Barnet Water Polo team to fifth place at the London Youth Games, held at the Crystal Palace Swimming Pool.

The boys from Years 8 and 9 took part in the all day event, competing in five matches of 12 minutes each. Dinos Caryotis, Freddie Flinn, Tom Segev, Rohun Valecha and Brian Kong all play for the Watford Water Polo Club, run by former Serbian International Nik Jovanovic.

“QE currently has 20 pupils attending the partnership and Nik has been impressed with their development which he described as fantastic,” said PE teacher Nick Bird. “Clearly the swimming pool [pictured] is a great asset to the School and it is very satisfying to see our boys progressing so well in the sport.”
