Healing's Happy Hat-Trick!

The winning intermediate cheerleading team from Healing, with their trophy.

A hat-trick of wins was secured by Healing School in North East Lincolnshire's annual inter-school cheerleading competition.

The 45 girls in intermediate and junior squads travelled to Oasis Wintringham Academy.

The intermediates, from Years 7 to 10, came first out of six teams and also won awards for creativity and synchronicity.

The 15 Year 7 girls in the junior squad also performed well in their first competition.

Healing School PE teacher and coach Helena Yeadon praised all 45 girls who took part.

"The intermediates had exceptionally high scores across the board while the juniors have improved enormously since September," she said.

"I was very proud of them and it's a terrific achievement to have won the event for the past three years.

"They all enjoy it and have bundles of enthusiasm and energy. We're now looking forward to performing in a regional Dance Showcase at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe in March and the National School Cheerleading Championships in Manchester during June".

Principal Mark Knapton congratulated the pupils.

"Our cheerleading club is a very popular extra-curricular activity and the successes will only encourage them further," Mr Knapton said.
