Snowdon retain Inter-House Gymnastics crown

Preparatory School gymnasts were in fine form in pursuit of valuable house points at a special sporting event.

A large number descended for the annual inter-house Gymnastics competition on Friday, February 22, which was the final activity before they headed off on a well-deserved half term break.

Each year group were tasked with coming up with short routines with a view to impressing the judges in attendance, and their total scores were averaged to determine the victor.

After an action-packed afternoon full of quality, Snowdon House were crowned the overall winners of the competition, which is the second consecutive year they have managed to get their hands on the coveted trophy.

A fine effort from Pembroke saw them end the showcase in second position, with Brecon rounding off the places in third.

Snowdon House captains Sophie Edwards and Gabriel Donohue lifted the trophy on behalf of their teammates.

Head of Boys’ Games Jamie McLeod, said: “It was another great demonstration of not only the athletic ability we are fortunate to work with here at Rydal Penrhos, but their ability to work within a team to reach their overall target.

“Each pupil is enormously proud of representing their respective houses and this really comes across at the competitions we put on throughout the academic year.

“The Gymnastics Championship proved to be no exception and congratulations go to Snowdon on retaining their crown.”
