Boys Impress in Gym Final
Monday, 13 February 2012
Year 8 Pupils showed off their gymnast skills by competing in the final of their annual gym assessment.
In their PE lessons, Year 8 boys work on their vaults for the annual assessment and the eight boys who performed at the highest level progressed to the final which was staged in front of the whole year group, adding extra pressure to the competitors!
The boys were marked on four different vaults - Through vault, Straddle vault, Rotational vault, and Double box vault, by PE staff, who after tough consideration decided that the gold would go to Rohan Patel, the silver to Will Hinchcliffe, and the bronze to Craig Borrows.
The trophy and medals were awarded to the winners by the Headmaster and all the boys received certificates of achievement.
Mr Matt Johnson, Head of PE, was one of the judges. He said: "The lads had worked hard during the year to develop their vaulting skills and the final was a very close encounter, watched by the whole of Year 8. In the end, Rohan deservedly won the competition and held his nerve to produce 4 excellent vaults. Well done."
