Check out our video from Sunday’s day of Junior Nationals Physie fun and friendship – just click on the play button!  This was a day of outstanding achievement, not just for the competitors, but for all their teachers, who should be incredibly proud of what they have inspired in their students.  We love nothing more than seeing the confidence that Physie instills in girls and young women because we know it is empowering them for life.  photo1 1

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the day was how beautifully behaved the girls were backstage – all 675 of them!  It’s always a long day but the girls handled themselves like professionals and we couldn’t have been more proud of them.  The same goes for our band of 130 volunteer helpers who looked after the competitors backstage.  To them we give our heartfelt gratitude (especially those who helped both morning AND afternoon – you troupers!!) and we acknowledge that we couldn’t have this huge event without all of you! THANK YOU.

One parent sent this message by email today…  “Special thanks to the helpers in heat 2 – my daughter was quite upset at not making the finals and one of your helpers made her feel much better. It’s wonderful for parents to know that their children are cared for.” Vanessa.photo1 2
