in Year 7 is not only an outstanding gymnast and part of the GB tumbling
squad for her age, she is also a dab hand at trampolining as well. Maddie
recently competed for the Academy along with other students from the Academy in
the Area Trampolining competition and won gold in the Year 7 age group. Well
to Destiny in Year 7 who won a gold medal in a Street Crew Competition on
Sunday 19th May. Destiny, the
youngest in her group, started dancing at two years of age and trains at
Bexhill Centre Stage on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This was Destiny’s first of ten competitions planned for this year and we wish her all the best.
Well done Destiny!
Ben in Year 8 is a
talented boxer who is extremely dedicated to the sport that he loves. We are
very pleased to report...
Year 8 took part in a Lego
robots STEM session on Monday and Wednesday this week. They designed and built
a Lego crocodile robot then created a simple programme using a visual,
drag-and-drop interface on a computer to make it snap its jaws and play sounds!
They also looked at the applications of this technology inspired by the animal
kingdom for rescue missions in the future.
to Elisha in Year 8 who reached the final of the U14 200m fly at the
South East Swimming Championships at the K2 in Crawley over the weekend of 11th/12th
was Elisha’s first taste of regional competition and with 88 clubs competing,
this was a fantastic achievement to make the final where she finished an
impressive 7th. Elisha trains for 12 hours a week with the Hastings
Seagull Swimming Club and her hard work certainly paid off. Well
