Starlight Success

Cheerleading Team Triumph at Disneyland

In March, Leeds West Academy’s cheerleading team - The Starlights - spent five days at Disneyland Paris, competing in Future Cheer’s Take Us to The Magic European Championship. Out of the categories entered, the team won 4th, 3rd, two 2nd and one 1st place award.

In addition to the competition, the students also took part in the Disney Parade, marching down Main Street. The cheerleaders also dined at Cafe Mickey, Annette's Diner, Billybob's Wild West Restaurant and Plaza Gardens.

Ms Johnston, Cheerleading Coach, said: "Our girls were impeccable during a very enjoyable five days. The Starlight Cheerleaders are now in their fourth year, amassing dozens of trophies and necessitating a new cabinet! Thank you to Ms Jennings, Ms Marsh, Ms Hinchcliffe and Ms Banks for their help during the tour. Huge thanks also to our outstanding student leaders; Sophie, Leah, Emily, Grace, Olivia, Lucy and Leonie who supported our team throughout the whole trip."
