Athletics Rally and Day of Dance 2016

On Monday 13 June, nearly 1,000 girls and staff gathered at the University of Bath for the annual GDST Athletics Rally and Day of Dance.

Organised by Sarah Penny, Director of Sport at The Royal High School Bath, the athletics rally involved girls from Year 5 upwards taking part in a range of track and field events. There were many personal bests and it was a great day for all.

Putney High School were the overall winners, with Ipswich High School in second place and Newcastle High School for Girls third.

The Day of Dance was organised by Brighton Girls. After a mass warm-up, the girls enjoyed workshops on musical theatre, commercial, contemporary, street dance, and then performed their own pieces.

Organised by Sue James, Head of Dance at Brighton & Hove High School, the girls also enjoyed working with Kira Bishop, a choreographer with Pineapple Dance Studios.
