Selection confirmed for Team GB Tae Kwondo.
Last weekend saw the final selection for possible inclusion in the National Tae Kwondo team. It was the culmination of a rigorous process which involved thousands of other candidates over the last few months. At the end of it, only 44 places were available... and Jacob was given one of them!
More amazing is that his main sport is karate - a discipline for which he has won many medals over the years. To be approached to trial for a sport in which he has had no training is incredible! He was spotted earlier in the year by a Tae Kwondo coach and clearly impressed Team GB throughout the range of tests he had to complete, both mental and physical.
Congratulations Jacob - we are really proud of you!
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
Some of our talented musicians were able to play to their parents and carers in a Summer Showcase on Monday evening. Here's a mini taster of our band and their amazing musical talent! #WeAreEggars https://t.co/3wIeXrP16D 6:47 AM - 22 Jul 2021
