Hi Everyone

Lovely to see so many of you coming along to practices every week and trying very hard to improve on your gymnastics routines.

We are continuing to work with the ones that are competition ready and getting them to work hard to get the routines in their heads.

The younger ones coming through are working on the basics and it is really great to see them enjoying themselves and gaining more confidence.

We have a competition coming up near the end of September.  We are finalizing the lists of who will be going and notices will be sent home soon.  The comp is in Rotorua.

In the meantime, if you have a leotard at home, please can you bring it back to us on Wednesday next week (30th August).  We need to make sure we have them all back so that we can re-size etc before the next competition.

I have a list of who has them so will be chasing them up.  Spread the word among your friends that may still have one from either last comp or last year please.

We will be collecting leotards before the kids leave the competition and names will be ticked off (not handed in will lead to a $60.00 invoice, which I am sure parents don't really want)

The competition is in Rotorua this time and those that get chosen will be working really hard the next couple of weeks.  We will also be having a visit to the gym to practice on their equipment before the comp.

Happy Gym Practices everyone!

What's Happening

Hi Everyone

The term is flying by!  Gymnastics is going well, it is great to see so many of the kids turning up for practices and learning the routines.

We have a competition in Te Puke next Friday, some of the children have been selected to represent our school at this comp.  Training for this comp is going well and the kids are excited about going.  For some of them this will be their first 'out of town' comp for gym.

We are continuing to learn routines this term and will be looking at which kids might get selected to come to the Rotorua Comp in September.  The selection is not just based on whether they can do the routine well but is also based on whether they come to practice regularly as that is all part of it.

Fantastic to see we now have a number of boys coming so I am confident we will send a boys team to the Rotorua comp!

PLEASE NOTE:  THERE IS NO GYMNASTICS THURSDAY 16TH JUNE - Mrs Hughes is away and I am taking a school team to Te Puke for a Squash tournament

See you all Wednesday next week.

Any queries, please contact us through the school office.

Hey Everyone, welcome to Term Two

Gymnastics this term will be on Wednesday and Thursdays in the hall at lunch time.  Sorry for the changes in days last term, term one is always a little hectic!

We will be concentrating this term on routines to make sure those that get selected for competitions will be ready.

PLEASE ensure if your child wants to come to gym that they have their PE uniform as it is too hard to do gym in school uniforms.  Also, make sure their uniforms are named as when they take them off in the hall they don't always remember where they left their uniforms so can get mixed up with someone else.

Lastly, gym is all provided free to students and we coaches are volunteering our time to come and teach so all children coming to gym are expected to listen and behave while in the hall with the gym group.  We also ask that seniors and middle students help with packing the equipment away at the end of the session.

We should have a great term of gym and we are looking forward to helping get your child to be a better gymnast and be more confident with the routines.  There are a couple of out of town competitions this term and some of the children will be selected for these.

Practice! Practice!  Practice!

See you all at our first practice this week!

All is going well with Gym practices, good to see so many of the kids turning up.

The next few weeks are going to be posted up here as to what days training is on.  Once we come back next term we will have the days locked in.

Week starting 3rd April
Practice on Tuesday and Thursday lunch time

PLEASE can you ensure the kids are wearing pe gear or shorts and t shirt as it is too hard to practice in your uniform.

Also, ensure your uniforms are named as with them all getting changed and racing off it is easy to pick up the wrong uniform.

Keep practicing and we will see you next week!  REMIND YOUR FRIENDS!!

Hi Gymnasts

Gym practice will only be on a Thursday lunch time for a few weeks, we'll keep you posted but that is the only day at this stage.

If you have other commitments that day then continue with those and come to the gym if you finish beforehand.  If it is meetings, see if you can change the days.  We will boost up the practices closer to the competition dates for those that will go to comps.

Keep practicing!

Hi everyone

There will be no gymnastics for the next couple of weeks due to the hall being booked and full of gala items.

PLEASE!  Can you look at home to ensure you have no leotards, we are waiting on a few to be handed back.

See you all week after Gala :)
