Gymnastics Success at the South East Wales Schools Gymnastics Tumble & Vault Championships 2022!
On Friday 28th January, two of our incredibly talented Year 5 gymnasts represented Penygarn Community Primary School at the South East Wales Schools Gymnastics Tumble & Vault Championships, which was held in Kestrel Gymnastics Club, Chepstow. Both pupils competed in the Under 11’s age category. They had to perform three different tumble runs on the floor and two different vaults over the box. They both performed their tumbles and vaults beautifully, not only doing themselves proud but the school incredibly proud too. One of our gymnasts scored so highly on her tumble and vault performances that she placed first overall, earning herself the title of ‘South East Wales Schools Tumble & Vault Champion’ of the entire under 11’s section of the competition! She will now go on to represent both Penygarn Community Primary School and the South East Area at the Welsh Finals, which will be held in March at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff! We are wishing her lots of luck and can’t wait to hear all about it! It is lovely to see competitions taking place again and we are looking forward to what the rest of the school year brings for our pupils and their sporting activities.
We have once again been awarded our Platinum Level for the Eco Schools Award! They were very impressed with what we are doing, especially the distance learning activities and surveys we’ve sent out, development of the school grounds, Eco Schools outdoors and in the classes, engagement across the school with staff and children, and, within the community through our social media, website and home learning. We passed with flying colours!
Cross Country in December!
On Tues 3rd Dec, Miss Otterstead and Miss Williams took 10 Y5 and 10 Y6 children to participate in the Torfaen Junior Cross Country Championships in Ponty pool Park. The children were an absolute credit to the school. Their behaviour was outstanding and their positive attitudes and good sportsmanship towards others was nothing short of superb. The children ran their hearts out and all completed the challenging route! We now await the final results which should be with us by next week! Congratulations and well done to you all!
