SPH Foundation National Junior Swimming Championship 2006

A total of 139 young disabled swimmers vied for national honours at the Co-Curricular Activities Branch Swimming Complex along Evans Road on Saturday, 20 May 2006, as the Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Foundation made its first foray into disability sports.

Canossian School, which provides education for hearing impaired children, went home as the champion of Best Overall Team Performance, beating its runner-up, Grace Orchard School, by 200 points.

The SPH Foundation National Junior Swimming Championship is the first event to kick off under the partnership between the SPH Foundation and Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC), which was sealed in a Memorandum-of-Understanding Signing Ceremony, held on 15 May 2006.

This partnership makes SPH Foundation a developer sponsor of the Junior Athlete Development Programme (JADP) in Swimming, and the first developer sponsor of disability sports in Singapore.

Mr Henry Tan, Vice-President of the Singapore Disability Sports Council, and Mr Arnold Gay, Deputy General Manager of the Singapore Press Holdings Foundation were also at the swimming championship to support all young disabled swimmers.
