ST JOSEPH'S GYMNASTS TRIUMPH IN SOMERSET SCHOOLS GAMES FINALS
Today a team of 17 gymnasts from St Joseph's travelled all the way to Yeovil to compete in the Somerset School Games Gymnastics Finals. The Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 teams had earned the right to represent both the school and area in these finals having previously beaten off competition from all other local schools in the Sedgemoor area.
The challenge of facing completion from the very best gymnast in the Mendip, Taunton and Yeovil area was rather daunting....however the children were just magnificent. Judged while executing two vaults and a rather difficult floor routine, the St Joseph super stars set to work with passion and determination and were faultless in my eyes. The Key Stage 1 teams finished in 6th and 3rd place, with our Key Stage 2 team finishing in 4th. They were a real credit to the school and I couldn't have been prouder! A special thank you to the parents who offered valuable support and also gave up their own time to transport the children there, it is much appreciated.
