Pupils from Tannochside Primary enjoyed a special surprise when Commonwealth Games Ambassador Rebecca Adlington visited the school.

The double-Olympic gold medal swimmer at the 2008 Beijing Games was promoting her Swim Stars campaign which aims to ensure that every child of primary school age is able to swim at least 25 metres.

After her visit to Tannochside she went on to meet pupils and teachers at St Gerard’s Primary School in Bellshill.

Rebecca who also won two bronze medals at London 2012 retired from all competitive swimming in February.
