TEACHERS at a Southall primary school received a visit from a Commonwealth Games gold medallist yesterday (23) as a reward for being more active.

Bianca Williams, who won a gold medal in the 4 x 100m relay at the 2018 Games in Australia, was at Featherstone Primary School to congratulate staff for building an active school culture.

The school has been working hard to increase children’s movement and play as part of Active Kids Do Better, a Nike and Discovery Education programme.

Bianca also met teachers from other London schools who were at Featherstone for an Active Kids Do Better workshop.

She shared inspiring stories about her own active journey and spoke about the coaches who motivated her as a child.

Laura Tiernan, from Featherstone Primary, said: “The programme creates these opportunities and helps us to increase movement in a fun way. We can see the benefits it delivers in terms of better focus and attainment.”
