Cooroy Gymnastics Club undertakes major upgrade

Cooroy Gymnastics Club undertakes major upgrade

The Cooroy Gymnastics Club has been undergoing a process of upgrades and equipment renewals over the past 18 months, including, a completely new complex layout to maximise usability.

This week saw the apex of the apparatus replacements with a new international standard competition floor area.  The new floor area was funded under a grant from the Queensland Government’s, “get in the game” program. 

The Queensland Government provided $59,743 to Cooroy Gymnastics Club to upgrade existing flooring to support gymnastics at Cooroy to increase Queenslanders participation in sport and recreation activities.

The new competition standard floor area is larger and is fully sprung to facilitate the growth in our competitive program.  The high standard of equipment is enabling gymnasts to perform higher level skills.  The new Spieth competition floor is the same floor used at World Championships and the Olympic competition.

The floor installation has been timely as Cooroy has two competitors competing in the Queensland Senior State Championships in Brisbane from Friday April 7th until Monday April 10th.  Kyle McCartney, level 10 and Finlay Jones, level 7 will use the new floor to develop new and improved skills on floor including layout twisting elements.

From Sunshine Coast Daily Tuesday Aug 23rd 2016

Movement Makes Minds

Prep teachers at Pomona State School have high mastery of literacy and numeracy as their "core business."

To this end, their Perceptual Motor Programme goes a long way to helping children achieve high results by developing effective and efficient gross and fine motor skills.

"Gross Motor" refers to whole body movements eg. walking, throwing, and catching, while "fine motor"  is about using hands and fingers.  Children with sound gross and fine motor skills are often better prepared for academic tasks.

Our prop day encourages play with rhythm and rhyme to enhance and refine balance and co-ordination. When a child had good fine motor control, holding a pencil correctly and learning to write is a snap.

So how does prep at Pomona help children develop good writing skills?

By providing  man and varied opportunities to manipulate materials.

PE teacher, Mr Ben Byrne also works with the preps to develop their gross motor skills.

This term, the prep students have been working on developing their "core" strength with the help of Craig and Jeff from the Cooroy Gymnastics Club. The aim of the programme is to learn fundamental movements and body awareness.

Mastery of effective fine and gross motor skills helps form the foundation for successful lifelong learning.

After all that is our goal.
