Easter 2021

As the start of the year has been very challenging for the girls, we decided to have an Easter online Party. Lots of fun was had by all, crafting, baking and online bingo! We also handed out the medals and certificates for achievements in the term.

Three Peaks Virtual Challenge

We challenged our gymnasts to complete the virtual ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ by climbing the stairs in their homes, during our online sessions. They climbed a massive 24,338 steps – the height of Snowdon, Pen y Fan and Cadair Idris combined!
