A team of youngsters from the borough took part in a gymnastics competition against schools from across the north of England.
The seven Year 3 and 4 girls from Appletree Gardens First School in Whitley Bay competed in the North of England Schools Gymnastics Association (NESGA) competition, held at Stainsby School of Gymnastics in Stockton on Thursday.
The squad was the only school in North Tyneside to compete in the under-11 girls’ floor and vault competition.
As part of the competition the youngsters had to compete in individual floor routines and two vaults each.
Teaching assistant Lynsey White, who has been training the squad since October, said: “The girls were an absolute credit to the school.
“This was the first time Appletree has ever competed in anything like this, and the girls were fantastic, they really did us proud.”
