The Frizlands Lane-based school clinched gold and bronze in a recent tournament
William Bellamy Primary School had plenty to cheer last week when two of their teams won medals in a basketball event.
The Dagenham school took part in a borough competition along with four others and they managed to secure gold and bronze medals.
Both teams produced fine basketball throughout and Elijah, captain of the side which won gold, said: “It was a great experience.
“I enjoyed participating and winning a very important competition like this. It was magnificent. I hope I can get more opportunities like this one in the future.”
A spokesperson for the Frizlands Lane-based school added: “The pupils at William Bellamy will now begin to use their skills as well as their understanding of the sport in their young sport leader roles.
“They will look to support pupils from lower year groups to help them try to enjoy the game of basketball some more.”
