LUCKY pupils from Studlands Rise First School are getting expert tuition from British basketball star Andrea Congreaves.

The 29-year-old, who won a bronze medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, will visit the school this term to help pupils enjoy basketball and to improve their skills.

The Schools Sports Partnership helped bring Andrea to the school with the aid of funding, and so far it has been a big success.

PE teacher Charlotte Dobson said: "The kids absolutely love Andrea coming in and they have all learnt so much already since she's been coming into our school.
