CGSSSA Gymnastics Update
The 2020 gymnastics team have had the opportunity to train during Thursday sport time at Oatley RSL Gym under the guidance of Sara Attard (ex Bethany student and level 10 gymnast) and Fatih (from Turkey). This has been a positive decision as the College did not have access to the uneven bars and the majority of students were unable to compete in the section. It also allows high level gymnasts to train with the school team during sport time.
Unfortunately our Coach Elisabeth Andrews who started the Bethany gym team around 15 years ago was unable to coach the team during school hours however has the opportunity to oversee all of the gymnasts on the day of competition assisting the organisers and each school.
The competitors in the 2020 team range from Years 7 – 10 and are: Alana Caristo, Thalia Hantzopoulos, Emma McHardy, Amy Trajkovski, Ashlee Brinkman, Katelyn D’Astoli, Bianca Karaboulis, Amahlia Ngatuvai, Everett Vane-Tempest Stewart, Olivia Komusanac, Mina Popovska and Olivia Plomaritis.
