Growing on the success of last year’s competition record entries proved that there is a real desire to compete and qualify for the level 3 Spring School Games.
This KS2 event included a team of 6 competitors all doing a vault and either a Floor or Body Management routine.
The event opened with an electric floor display of skill from Netherhall School student Ellie Trent. Ellie is in Year 9 and is also a part of the schools leadership academy. Her flawless display and was a great inspiration to the competitors!
The standard of gymnastics was high the outfits very colourful! Leaders from Netherhall and Sawston were excellent at making sure the competitors were in the right place at the right time, encouraging and supporting the contestants. Qualified student Judges also from Netherhall and Sawston were very focused and efficient, doing an excellent job to keep the competition moving smoothly. Well done and thank you to all of these students.
