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.
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!
Well done to all gymnasts who took part in this year’s grades competitions in Llanelli. I am amazed at the “Dragons” extreme determination….motivation…pure grit and super positive attitude today at West Area grades.
Fabulous results in every age group. Well done Ladies, what an achievement.
Congratulations to Hollie who finished 3rd on Vault at Grade 3.
