In Gymnastics, congratulations to Lola S, who was called up to compete in bars and vault at the Performance 3 National Final at the weekend. She competed in a team of five, and they did brilliantly on the National Stage. Her true highlight was her vault, where she hit a PB and secured 10th place nationally – an incredible achievement in her first National Final! The SW team came 8th overall. 

In the last week, the U14 boys’ cricket team has won its first two games of the season against Penair and Penryn. Batting second in both games, they successfully chased totals of just over 100 inside 20 overs. The players of the match went to Felix B and Freddie G in the respective games for controlled scores of 30, which anchored the side to victory.
