Elite athlete testing comes to Southern Road!

Southern Road Primary School has been provided with two qualified coaches on the search for the next Usain Bolt or Jessica Ennis in years 5 and 6! Each child was put through three intense challenges which consisted of: sprinting 100 metres, a chest push with a 1KG ball and a standing long jump.

All the children put 110% into every activity and impressed their teachers as well as the professional coaches. Only the exceptionally gifted are picked to join an elite after school club at Newham Leisure Centre.
We are happy to announce the following children have been chosen to further their potential at the Newham Leisure Centre elite athletes club.
Well done boys and girls
