Our fencing coach Mr Gale was delighted with the performance of our fencing team following the Buckland Handicap Fencing Competition in Plymouth. He reported that Jake (Prep 6) placed a very well earned 5th place in the under 10s foil, while Amelia (Prep 4) was hot on his heels with a 6th place and the accolade of Best Girl.
Also during the Autumn half-term holiday, Arlo (Prep 6) was invited to watch the England v Russia International at the Lansdowne Club in London. Arlo was selected for this as he has been recognised as a potential future international level fencer. He along with brother Alfie were thrilled to meet with some of the country’s top fencing talent.
Not to be outdone, Lyonhearts, our open and adult fencing group, held their monthly ‘Fight Night’ and Roselyon parent Johan Steyn (parent of Ewan in Prep 5) won the coveted ‘Sword of Power’! The group meets on the first Friday evening of the month at Bodmin Leisure Centre.
Thirteen children from Roselyon took part in the British Schools Team Chapmionships last weekend and all gave an excellent account of themselves. We are very proud of Billy, Arlo and Alfie who came home with bronze medals, even though they have another year in the same age group. Congratulations!
Grace has made us all proud by winning a bronze medal in the South West Regional British Youth Qualifiers for Fencing. This entitles her to represent the South West in the U12 Girls’ Foil British Youth Chamionships in Sheffield in April. We are especially proud of Grace because she only started fencing last summer. Congratulations and good luck!
