Congratulations to our school aerobics team who performed at the NSW State Finals in Sydney on the weekend. The girls did a wonderful job and placed 5th overall. Well done to Sia, who competed individually in the Primary Singles State Finals and came 1st! Amazing! Sia now has the opportunity to compete in Nationals on the Gold Coast later this year. After having a little rest, the Sapphires will be training hard again for the Spring Challenge event which is coming up in September. Be sure to come along to our Hall of Fame assembly on Monday where the girls will be performing for us.
Thank you to everyone who came along last night to support our school at the CEP Festival at Waratah High. It was a great night – the Sapphires and Bandlink did an excellent job performing and the premiere of our short film was well received. It was lovely to hear so many cheers for Mr Junon’s cameo appearance! Please have a look at the photos and videos below!
Congratulations to our school aerobics team , The Sapphires , who competed today in Sydney and were crowned State Champions. What an incredible achievement! Well done to Elsie, Sophia, Phoebe, Lyric, Sia, Alysse and Indigo who have worked so hard and have been practicing every day during break times. A huge thanks and well done to Miss Elley who has been training, coaching and supporting the team through this entire process. The girls will head to the Gold Coast later this year to compete in Nationals. Congratulations and good luck!
The aim of the program is to incorporate fitness, fun, choreographed aerobics moves & teamwork culminating in entry into the NSW Schoolaerobics Competition, held throughout Australia. The Sapphires entered the NSW Preliminary Finals, held in Sutherland on Sunday 3rd May. After a term of dedication & commitment to training during lunch, recess and school holiday breaks, the team were ready to perform their routine and compete against other schools from various regions in NSW.
The nervous energy, giggling, anticipation and excitement brought smiles to the faces of all the girls, their teachers and their family members who had travelled to watch them compete. Taking to the stage for the first time in an aerobics competition, the girls were ready to give it their all and performed an absolutely fantastic routine. So good in fact, they were awarded 1st place in the Primary Stage 1-Classic Section. (A section specifically for schools who are new to the Schoolaerobics Competitions)
The 1st placing means that The Sapphires will progress to the NSW STATE FINALS to be held on 21st June, in Sutherland. With a berth into the Australian National Championships at stake, the team are now working towards improving upon their routine and aiming for stronger synchronisation and strength in their aerobic moves.
Finally, THPS and The Sapphires would like to acknowledge the wonderful contributions of our sponsors for the aerobics program – TANTOS IT, Hamilton Doctors & Newcastle City Holden. The assistance of these businesses has been paramount in helping The Sapphires with their competition gear, training materials & entry fees. A huge thank you must also go to Ms Brown and Miss Elley for all their effort, dedication and hard work coordinating Schoolaerobics.
