A total of 39 students from Drasa Primary School of Lautoka will participate in the National School's Swimming Championships which starts in Suva this Friday.
Known as the Drasa Dolphers, the team was formed to promote swimming as a lifelong sport for the schoolchildren and to provide them a pathway to join a club.
Team spokesperson Edward Work said they strived to empower every swimmer, regardless of age or ability, to reach their highest personal potential as an athlete and a person.
"Swimming is regarded as one of the most competitive sports in the world," Work said.
"We would like to thank Fiji Water, Fiji Chemical and all other sponsors for their generosity.
"Our hearty thanks go out to the donors, hardworking committee, teachers, parents, the coach and volunteers for their endless support.
"We would also like to thank the Northern Club committee, management and its members for allowing our children to train at their pool.
"Our goal is to team up with the local businesses and supporters of swimming in our community to offer our children fun and rewarding experiences in the sport," he added.
