This is the final year of CGSSSA competition for Year 12 student, Arna Nocita, who has been part of the team since Year 7. Arna will be missed and we wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours.

Gymnastics Australia – Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) have introduced a new framework commencing in 2015 which meant changes for the CGSSSA Gymnastics competition. This meant that we were running behind in learning the routines and the girls worked exceptionally hard in the final weeks leading up to the competition.

Reflection by Serena Piccolruaz Year 8 It was a wonderful experience participating in the Gymnastics competition despite the nerves I had on the day. It was awesome watching all the other gymnasts doing their routine so gracefully. I really enjoyed the gymnastics competition because it was a fun extra curricula activity to do which involved lots of physical activity. My team worked very hard during our regular training sessions and also at the recent training day at Kogarah; which is why I believe we came second!

Everyone supported each other in my team and most importantly we had FUN! I am very proud of my team and myself as we could not have done it without each other. By joining the gymnastics team I have many new achievements and conquered some of my old fears like doing handstands on the Beam. Gymnastics at Bethany College has certainly taught me a lot. It was a fun experience and I am definitely going to join next year.
