Three of our current sixth form girls are celebrating after a clear win in a regional dancing competition with English Town and County Carnival Organisation. Courtney Gardiner, Leah England and Darnell Weber were part of the Broadway Stars Morris Dancing Team who swept the competition away to make Diamond Senior Champions, in addition to being named runner up Diamond Senior Team who won the most competitions in 2015.
The English Town and County Carnival Organisation championships were held at Pontins, Southport where the girls and their experienced team won by a clear margin of seven points, much to the delight of their team and many supporters.
Courtney Gardiner, currently studying ICT, Photography, RS and Media at St. Mary’s Sixth Form said: 'I'm having a great time at the moment and am really busy. I'm elated to have won the competition with my team and to have all our hard work celebrated. I've danced competitively for 12 years and enjoy the community and team spirit we have. Sixth Form was supportive of us all and the time we needed to compete. I just had time to relax after Southport before a hectic but fantastic photography trip to Liverpool last week - and will be helping out at our Sixth Form Open Evening. Studying at St. Mary's is never dull!'
