Pupils from Crosshall Junior School met up with gymnast Louis Smith and professional golfer Hennie Goya during a school games event.

An opening ceremony was held at the St Ivo Indoor Centre where there was a motivational speech from professional golfer Henni Goya who spoke about performing and her work as a television presenter.

After the ceremony, competitors then performed at various venues and Crosshall competed against 10 other schools in the event at the Huntingdon gym.

All children participated in performing a vault for the judges, to which they were commended on their performances. T

After all rotations had been completed, pupils were encouraged to participate in some games and were able to interview Henni Goya about her success in the sport.

They had a final surprise when Louis Smith turned up to train at the gym. At the end of the competition Louis Smith allowed the children to take photographs with him and ask a few questions.

The Crosshall Junior School team finished in seventh place.
