Following the success of the Summer Show Jumping Championships in June, the Hastings High School Winter Dressage Championships took place at Lychgate Riding School on Sunday, 24th November. Each of the fourteen riders and her horse turned out very smartly; some girls even arriving at 7 am to start preparing their horses for the 10 o’clock start! The riders were judged by Mr John Robinson, National Dressage Judge and Deputy Selector for the Great Britain Junior Dressage Team. Mr Robinson was very impressed by the standard of the riding and by the professional way in which the girls conducted themselves and will be returning to Lychgate to judge the Hastings’ dressage competition next year.
The next equestrian event is the Summer Show Jumping Championships in June ,2104.

We raised £442 for Children in Need on Friday. Thank you very much and well done to everyone!
Make it with Mince Competition 2013.
This year for the first time all of the G&T year 9 food technology students were challenged to cook a mince dish of their own design for 2 people. They had to come up with an original idea, make sure it was healthy and that the ingredients fitted into their budget of £10.
The dishes were submitted to the national competition and Louise Caney was chosen to go forward to the Midlands cook off in Birmingham. She will have an hour to cook and present her dish to celebrity chef James Martin.
Louise Caney says: “I’m so excited to have reached the finals of the Make it with Mince competition and can’t wait for the cook off in front of James Martin. I’m a bit nervous though!
I really enjoy cooking and being creative with food. Creating my recipe was challenging but great fun."
We all wish Louise the best of luck in the Birmingham cook off.

She cooked Lamb kofta, pitta bread, feta salad and crème fraiche dip for celebrity chef James Martin and was competing against 8 other young people chosen from thousands of entries. We are thrilled to announce that Louise came second in the competition winning herself a signed chefs jacket, a signed James Martin cook book and a £50 John Lewis voucher.
