In February our Year 2 Gymnastic Teams placed 1st and 2nd in the area for the Key Steps competition.
This meant that the winning team were advanced to the Leicestershire County Finals which were held on Friday 29th April. The 4 girls (Ella,Ellie, Olivia and Lauren) from the winning team went to the Gymnastics center at New College in Leicester. This state of the art center hosts many competitions. The girls had to perform a floor routine followed by a body management routine and finished with a vault. All of these routines were judged by current gymnasts and their coaches. With 10 other school champions there, the competition was tough but the girls remained focused and positive. Their performances were outstanding and their teamwork was a credit to the school. After a very long, nervous wait the results were announced and St. Barts became County Champions. The girls couldn't wait to get back to school and show off their medals and trophy. They made us all very proud. Thank you to the parents who came to support and transported the girls- it made it all worthwhile!
