St Peter’s Diamonds Prep cheerleaders were awarded 1st place and won the Grand Champions Trophy at the All Stars Olympia competition in Auckland on August 19.

Coached by Michelle Williams from All Stars and St Peter’s Y12 student Cassidy Faber, the team put on their best performance to date. And clearly they impressed the judges! They achieved the highest score out of every team in the competition – making them the Grand Champions.

The students agreed that hard work and a number of repetitive practices has definitely paid off.
