Lauren and Bianca don’t go to the same physie club but they are the best of friends. Physie is all about fun, fitness and friendship and these two girls have become great physie friends through meeting at competitions.
Lauren and Bianca both placed at the zone competition last year and were very nervous about attending Nationals by themselves but then they became friends!
The girls couldn’t wait to see each other at nationals and could be found backstage playing, talking and having a lot of fun before their big performance.
Lauren and Bianca can’t wait to see each other again this year at zone but will get to meet up again long before that, at the Easter Show Performance next month.
We hope their story inspires physie girls everywhere to make a friend at national events.

This may not look like it, but it’s a photo of a physie girl. Renee does physie at Nepean club and is also training hard for aerial ski jumping. She spends half the year training interstate and overseas but when she’s home she fits in as many physie classes as she possibly can.
Her love of physie has never wavered. When overseas she films herself and sends videos back for her teachers to correct.
Physie actually helps Renee with this incredibly difficult sport. She says, “physie helps me keep a perfect body shape when I’m jumping. It’s given me a strong core and flexibility which are essential for my sport.” No wonder her coaches love the fact that she is still doing physie!

The Novocastrian physie community recently celebrated 50 years of BJP Physie in Newcastle at the Harbourview on Queens Wharf. 85 physie girls and teachers attended, both past and present, some who were there at the beginning in 1962 and some who had only just finished their first year of physie.
It was a fabulous night of informal mingling, catching up and laughing at old photos. The most memorable speech was given by Val Connors who, as vibrant as ever, captivated the audience with her recollections of physie.
