Club Activity Night

Knox Gymnastics Club, just ran our annual Club Activity Night for all our gymnasts.

It's 90 minutes of games and circuits. We had roughly 130 kids go crazy with tonight, with a Trampoline, Slides, Foam Pit, Rope Climbing & Swinging and a large Earth Ball.

Big thankyou to all the staff that helped make the night a success for the kids. And thankyou to all the parents that came out on an absolutely freezing evening for the sake of their childs enjoyment. Without all of you these night wouldn't be as much fun!

Safety Reminder

The car park can get very busy during pick-up and drop-off times. Please take it easy as there are lots of little kids running around which can be hard to see.

Please remember Gymnasts need to be brought into the Gym and collected from inside the gym each class. Not from the car park. This is to make sure all gymnasts are safe.

It is also getting darker earlier now and also wet, this will make it harder to see small children, please be very mindful when moving through the car park.
