Tala Zayat, 13, from Alperton Community School has been recognised by the Youth Sport Trust and awarded the regional winner of the Committed Learner category in the Girls Active Awards 2017.

The Girls Active Awards celebrates the work of schools to develop positive attitudes towards sport and recognises individual students for their personal academic achievements, wellness transformations and inspirational leadership through increased physical activity. Tala joined the school during Year Seven, having moved to England from Syria. “When I joined my school, I wasn’t into sport – you could say I was lazy!” Tala said.

“I heard about the after school clubs so I gave them a go. I tried everything including netball and football. “Playing sport helped me to make friends and develop my confidence.” Tala’s P.E teacher, Rachael White said: “Since arriving from Syria, Tala has accessed every opportunity available to her. Now she’s a real leader.”
