Despite only being in action for six months, the Banstead Community Junior School athletics club is taking the county by storm.

The team of year 5 and 6 pupils have won the East Surrey Sports Hall Athletics competition, and have qualified for the Surrey county competition.

Teacher Tracey Low said: “We are so very proud of the children. They were so enthusiastic and showed real sportsmanship throughout the competition.

“They cheered everyone and demonstrated how effort and a positive attitude really pays off.”

The children are now all training hard for the Surrey County Sports Hall Athletics competition, being held next month in Guildford.
