Gloucester sisters Kylee, Riko and Josie Fitzgerald are jumping for joy after their sixth year with Taree Great Lakes Physie.

They’ve had a fantastic time at the interclub, zone and national competitions but it’s not the only reason they love their Physical Culture classes.  

“As a Physie student for more than 2 years, I have found that BJP Physie has given me sportsmanship, confidence, self-esteem, happiness and lifelong friends. They are true to their motto of empowering girls for life,” Kylee said.

“Physie also has given me an opportunity to do a sport with my family that we can all enjoy.”

Recently the club held for their presentation day. Everyone was rewarded with a trophy, certificate and gift. There were some special perpetual trophies handed out too.

The sisters were proud Stroud’s Isabella Eggleton won the Kyoko Sakamoto Memorial Trophy (named after their mother) for junior marching.
