It is extremely intense competition with gymnasts performing in front of other children, judges & parent spectators. The key steps 3 team made up of Zofia, Savannah, Cameron & Oliver done extremely well and just narrowly missed out on the medals by 0.2 points. They eventually finished 5th place in the borough which is an excellent achievement for such a small school.
