England netball player Eboni Beckford-Chambers gave the junior girls at Claires Court School a prize giving day to remember.
Eboni, who will compete in the Commonwealth Games later this month, handed out the awards on Wednesday, July 9, and gave a speech.
She also spent time on the netball court signing autographs and enjoyed lunch with year six pupils, giving them advice about moving on to the next stage of their education.
There was a variety of performances from each class, from reception singing 'Let It Go' to the Bhangra dancing of year five students.
"I was so impressed with the girls' performances and honoured to be part of this very special day," said Eboni.
"The charisma and confidence they showed is outstanding. It was a beautiful afternoon."
