Huge Success at South-East Championships

Posted on: May 11th, 2022 by David Finch

Big Success at South-East Championships (8th May – Burgess Hill)

After weeks of hard work, time, effort and it was time for the MF Kent Team to compete for the first time in over 2yrs.For many it was their first competition but this did not stop everyone showing their very best.

For some, success was having the courage to stand up and perform in front of lots of people and for others it was having the determination to continue when things didn’t quite go to plan. Without exception, the entire team was one big success story and everyone should feel exceptionally proud.

Huge thanks must go to our wonderful parents, friends and supporters who have helped our students to practice and dedicate so much time to this event. Additionally, a big thank you to Mr Homewood and the team for the extra help in preparing everyone and special mention to Miss Calder for being such a positive team manager on the day.

Well done everyone.
