Youth Speaks Success

Youth Speaks Success

Last Friday, 19 January, our talented public speakers took part in the local heat of the Rotary Youth Speaks competition, hosted by Thorpe House School. Our Year 9 team triumphed in the Intermediate Section with their excellent team presentation on ‘Toxic Technology’, with Arabella as Chair, Ruby as Main Speaker and Emma giving the vote of thanks. They will now go on to compete in the Zone Final in Marlow on 1 February. Our Senior Team, from Year 12, did a fantastic presentation on the challenging topic of ‘Is Social Media Taking Over Our Lives?’ Their main speaker was Zamzam, with Ambar giving the vote of thanks. The Chair, Jazmin, was singled out for particular praise from the judges for her excellent teamwork and control of the meeting. Our Year 8 team also performed particularly strongly, considering they were new to public speaking. Chaired by Holly, with Ambi as Main Speaker and Siyona giving the vote of thanks, they spoke very eloquently on their topic, ‘Does Religion Degrade Women?’

Well done to all of these talented young ladies – they made us very proud.

Under 9s sweep the boards at national competition

Under 9 Team sweeps the board!

St Mary’s under 9 Gymnastic team swept the board at last weekend’s ISGA 4 Piece Challenge Cup, at St Faith’s in Cambridge. The team, consisting of Olivia, Leyla, Lucy, Lily-May and Eden, competed as individuals performing one set and one voluntary floor routine and vault. All the girls performed brilliantly against gymnasts from ten other schools from across the UK, with Olivia taking the Gold, making her National Champion, Lily-May won Silver and Eden won Bronze! A fabulous achievement which led our girls to win over all as a team as well.

Fantastic Gymnastic Results!

BSGA Milano Regional Championships

Many congratulations to our gymnasts who competed in the BSGA Milano Regional Championships this weekend. They all performed brilliantly, with the U16 team winning the competition and the U11s coming second.

We were delighted to host the prestigious British Schools Gymnastic Association, Milano Trio south region finals competition last weekend. Several local schools competed; Wycombe Abbey, Dr Challoners High School, Maltman’s Green and Beaconsfield High, as well as schools from across Hampshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Bucks. The U16s team comprised Freya, Poppy and Charlotte, whilst Tilda, Hollie, Rosie and Maya were in the under 11 team. All participants performed individual floor and vault routines and then a group routine. Our Under 16s scored the maximum possible for their group routine choreography, which was put together by Emily in Year 12. Both teams now go on to compete in the BSGA National competition in Stoke on Trent on 16-17 March. Well done, girls!
