A tremendous effort from Keira in Year 11 and Georgia in Year 13, who both competed at the Acrobatic Gymnastics British Championships last weekend.
Both girls finished in second place, bringing home silver medals.
Well done also to Kaitlyn and Darcie in Year 11, who were first at the GSR Dance Stage Event Competition over the weekend.
In Hockey, the U12 team continued to improve in their match against RGS and the U15’s narrowly lost to Dame Allans 1-0 in a very well contested game. In league Netball games against Durham Johnston, the U12 team lost and the U13 team won.
Finally, huge congratulations to the U18 Netball Team (right) who won the County Round of the National Schools’ Competition yesterday. They beat Durham School (17-1), Durham Johnston (17-9), Harton College (14-4), Whitburn Academy (15-6) and St Robert’s (30-2) and will now play in the Regional Round in January. Good luck to the U14 and U16 teams, who play in the competition on Saturday.
