This year, we were unable to hold our annual Display Day event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we held a Showcase Week and invited family and friends to sit in for a class to give our athletes the chance show off their routines and all the new skills they have learnt this year. During this week, we also presented our Perpetual Trophies for 2020.
Congratulations to our award recipients;
Rita Emily Coulton Award – Miranda RSL Youth of the Year Kristen Chirgwin
Ritchie Gillies Award – Karate Most Improved Nathan Donaldson
Kara Miller Award – Trampoline Encouragement Award Lucas Samuel
Joan McMaster Achievement Award – Female Trampolinist of the Year Isabella Richardson
Alec Dengate Achievement Award – Male Trampolinist of the Year Deklyn Gardner
*Please note that the Bert Walker Award – Karate Athlete of the Year was not awarded due to disruptions caused by COVID-19.

2020 has certainly been a year to remember and we are looking forward to what 2021 has in store. Starting Monday, we will be running a special ‘Games Week’ program to celebrate the end of the year. Term 4 classes will end on Thursday the 17th of December.
As this will likely be the last update for the year, we hope you have a very happy holidays and as always, stay safe!
