A Gad’s Junior sprinter has won first place in a countrywide competition.

Year 6 student Keira H., 11, took the title for her performance in the 80m race at the ISA National Championships.

Keira was joined at the prestigious event in Birmingham by classmate Grace W., who was equally impressive in the shot event, finishing fifth against more experienced competitors.

Head of PE Mrs Julia Gunnill said: “Both girls did exceptionally well and should be proud of their successes on the track and field.

“Thank you to their supportive parents who travelled across the UK to allow them to represent the school.”
