9 October 2015Beth speaks at Abbey Gate College prize giving
Students and staff at Abbey Gate College celebrated excellence at the annual speech day and prize giving award ceremony.
Bunbury's Beth, a former pupil of The Queen’s School, gave an inspiring speech and led a gymnastic session for J5 and 6 pupils earlier in the day. The class included spring board and bench balance work along with point balance routines on the mats.
J6 pupil Maisie Watkins said: “It felt like a dream. To meet Beth Tweddle was just overwhelming, I cried!”
Another J6 pupil, Libby Kane, said: “She was so normal and lovely. You would not have known that she was the most successful gymnast we’ve ever had!”
During the prize giving, a cheque for £9,800 was presented to Hayley Weaver from CLIC Sargent, thecollege’s nominated charity last year.
