At the weekend 3 teams from the Burlington Junior School Gymnastic Club, travelled to Sheffield to compete in the Milano Trio Competition. Over the years, the school has had a good track record of success at this regional competition and this year we entered 2 girls teams and 1 mixed team. Each team had to perform an individual routine and a group routine as well as compete on the vault. For some of these children it was their first ever time competing! However, they did not let the nerves get the better of them and everyone of them went out and gave 100% effort! The results were:

A huge well done to all the gymnasts that represented the school in such a positive a way they really are a credit to the school. Many thanks to all the parents who took their children to compete and supported them. A massive thank you to Laura who continually works hard to develop our gymnastic club and always supports our children during these events.
