Schools Gymfest 2012
Over 300 school gymnasts descended upon Bells Sports Centre in Perth on the 12th May for our annual Schools Gymfest display. 25 teams from 24 Primary and Secondary schools came from far and wide to take part in this fun filled event. We were thrilled yet again to see such a large representation from schools in the North of Scotland, thanks in no small part to Highland Schools Regional Organiser Liz Danby.
As with the main Gymfest in Irvine, routines, costumes and themes were as mixed as ever this year and made for a great spectacle. There was even a cameo role from Simon Cowell courtesy of Buckhaven High School! Performing alongside seasoned Schools Gymfest teams was a group of 8 gymnasts from Forrester High School in Edinburgh. Although a few of the girls had previously participated in Schools Gymfest when they were at Primary School this was the first, and hopefully not last, appearance from Forrester High.
We were also delighted to be joined on the day by 4 guest club display teams; Auchterarder, Astro Republic, Falkirk Infinity and Acrobay. Wowing the crowd with their Lion King inspired routine, Acrobay closed the event to rapturous applause and amazement from the school gymnasts and crowd alike!
