FOUR girls from a Gosport school took top prize for designing a seaside train.

Year 3 and 4 youngsters Scarlett Duff, Emily Cator, Emilia Hollands and Rowan Reddy, from Gomer Junior School, won a mini-technology challenge run by Portsmouth High School.

The girls were challenged to design, build and test a visitor attraction train for Southsea seafront which involved them in thinking, planning, constructing and presenting to a panel of external judges.

BAE Systems change coach Andrea Birmingham, who was on the judging panel, said: ‘Their quality of work has been spectacular, particularly for their young age.’

Among the pupils taking part were Daisy Collins, nine, of Hart Plain School in Waterlooville.

Daisy said: ‘The best part of the day has been making the carriage for Freddos to sit in.’
