Ellie – British Ice Skating ‘Champion’

Well done to Ellie in Year 10 who in January became a British Ice Skating ‘Champion’. Ellie works very hard at her skating, rising every other day just after 4am to be at the rink training before school. Last weekend Ellie and her team won gold at the British Championships in Nottingham. They are now the proud title holders ‘British Champions’ in the Advanced Novice b category. The team will be next competing in Dumfries for the Trophy D’Ecosse in February and then travelling to Budapest in March where they will compete for the Budapest Cup; they were also successful in winning silver at the Winter Cup in Belgium, November 2016.

We are all really proud of Ellie and her achievements and she deserves all the recognition possible, particularly as her success is borne out of hard work, sacrifice and self-discipline- attributes that we continue to look for from all our children at school – well done Ellie.
