Ever since the last sports contest at GYMY, every student and teacher had been counting days until the next big sports event at our school – the annual volleyball tournament. On Wednesday, March 23rd, right before Easter, our gymnasium had a revival with a rush of smashes and cheering from volleyball fans. The whole gym was crowded with students and teachers watching their favourite teams fight for the precious title of the volleyball champion of our school.
In our grammar school, sport tournaments among the students have a long tradition. A few weeks ago we had the amazing opportunity to take part in our annual pre-Christmas floorball contest.
On November 19th 2015, while the rest of our classmates were at home enjoying a free day from school, three students from our school (Ema Kuhajdová (2.B), my sister Soňa Novomestská (2.B) and myself, Tatiana Novomestská (5.B)) accompanied by our teacher Mrs. Doménová made a trip to Trenčín to participate in the Regional Competition of Aerobics Marathon. It took place at a sports hall in the town. High school students from various districts of the Trenčín region came here to dance their way into the national round. Although the name of the competition was Aerobic Marathon, our endurance and dance abilities were also tested in five various categories from aerobics to Piloxing and body weight exercises.
Students from the 1.B class and several students from other classes attended a ski trip, which took place at Kubínska Hoľa. Students gathered in front of the swimming pool in Myjava and departed
for Kubínska Hoľa on Sunday, 25 January. The journey was long and tiring, but students found ways to pass the time on the bus. In addition to the long journey, they had an hour long stop at Tesco
Later, they arrived at a parking lot from which they travelled to the cabin that they would be staying in.
