We will talk briefly to the children about the first day, split them into their groups with their teacher leader and then take the bus to the airport.

What a great learning experience for our young Gymnastics at the FOBISIA Gymnastics over the weekend. The level of competition was the best yet and the children should be really proud of the way they competed and also the level of skill, focus required to put all their hard work into practice was exceptional. Our children achieved some incredible results and with our Level 4 girls winning our first ever Team FOBISIA Gymnastics Trophy, coming 3rd place on points total. This year we had over 30 children representing STA at the FOBISIA Gymnastics, which shows the growth of our programme. A big thank you to Miss Bogi and her team who strive to continue to improve and develop our gymnastics programme to the next level.
