Interschool Gymnastics Competition Wrap
Star of the Sea College - Winners of the Secondary School Competition
The Interschool Gymnastics (ISG) competition took place over seven days at Athleta Gymnastics in Altona. It was a massive competition with over 1,000 students and coaches from 53 different schools over 21 sessions.
Students came from schools all across Victoria, with some students and coaches travelling a few hours to come and compete! The athletes had a wide range of gymnastics experience, ranging from seasoned gymnasts to students who had never competed in a gymnastics competition before.
The competition included classic Women’s and Men’s Apparatus such as Floor, Beam, Bars, Vault, Rings and Pommel. In addition to this, the Primary School students had the option to perform Aerobic, Acrobatic and Rhythmic Gymnastics routines. The Primary School Students also took part in Safety Drills to demonstrate safe falling and landing positions.
The Secondary School competition took place during the first week of ISG from the 4-7 September. Athleta Gymnastics was a hub of activity, with 575 students and 30 schools participating over the course of the competition.
Champions were crowned at the end of each session, as well as winners of the School Spirit Award for the schools who were the most encouraging and enthusiastic.
Star of the Sea College were the overall winners of the Women’s Secondary School Competition, with Loreto Mandeville Hall and Wesley College coming in second and third place respectively. The Men’s competition saw Wesley College take out first place, with second place going to Scotch College and Mary MacKillop coming in third place.
