We congratulate all our gymnasts on a very successful year and we look forward to 2018 with interest and much enthusiasm.

We also held our GYM BUSTERS displays for the families of our pre-school members who gave a wonderful performance of some of what they had learnt during the year. This was enjoyed by all who attended.

On Sunday 19 November we held our final GYM SKILZ grading for 2017.  Our pre-competitive gymnasts all performed outstandingly and we were thrilled to announce that they all exceeded the minimum score of 100 points, earning each of them their respective GYM badge.

There were a total of 17 gymnasts who achieved their M-badges and they will now be moving up to our competitive classes.   Congratulations to all on this significant achievement.

Our winners of the Badge grading were as follows:

G-badge

Boys:      Eashan Magjee
Girls:     Jessica Isaacson

Y-badge

Boys:      Thomas Anamourlis
Girls:      Leila Springer

M-badge

All-in-all it was a smashing weekend with over 250 participating gymnasts and well over 500 supporters in attendance to cheer them on.  Well done to all our gymnasts!
