Gymnastics 2015

As is usually the case at this time of the year we are heavily involved in gymnastics competitions, and it’s great to be able to report that our children are enjoying a lot of success.

Two weeks ago we took four teams down to Exeter for the Devon Floor and Vault Finals and we’re delighted to be able to tell you that all of our teams won medals.

We had teams in both under-nine and under-eleven competitions and we achieved two silver and two bronze medals.

Last weekend we took teams to the South West Regional Finals which were held in Bideford this year. Our under-eleven girls teams put on an amazing performance to finish in fourth and fifth places – missing out on a bronze medal by only 0.1 points in a team total of over 100.

Isaac won an individual silver medal in the under-eleven boys’ competition which is especially impressive when you realise that he’s only seven years old and still in Year Two.

In addition to all of this our Trio Team have qualified for the National Finals again which means that we’re off to Stoke this weekend to compete against school teams from across Britain.

As well as all of this success it is also wonderful to see so many children taking part each week.

It’s amazing to be able to report that we’ve entered fourteen teams (and over seventy children) in the North Devon Competition in Barnstaple next weekend.
