Cheerleading dedication pays off

The senior St Peter’s team, winners of their division.

St Peter’s School’s senior and prep cheerleading squads came away from the national Cheer ‘N’ Dance Rave competition with spectacular results, with the senior team winning their division and the prep team placed second in theirs.

Held in Auckland on Sunday, the event had more than 200 teams from New Zealand and Australia competing.

It was a well-deserved win as some of the girls had been training four hours a week, twice a week, since February and were 100 per cent dedicated to winning the competition. Well done!
