Display Week 1965 – Gymnastics display at Port Hacking High School.


Display Night 1976 – Ballet performance at the newly opened Miranda Youth Centre.


Display Day 1991 – Athletes performing a synchronised Routine during the Trampoline display.


Display Day 2015 – Athletes bow in at the start of the Karate display.


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!
