Two Te Awamutu Primary School students had the “best day of their lives” on Monday. Payton Dent and Frankie Britton, both eight, were among 30 students aged eight to 14 who had the chance to train with members of the Silver Ferns in Papakura.
Payton, left, and Frankie – who both play netball in Te Awamutu – were pictured with Silver Ferns Phoenix Karaka, Peta Toeava and Maia Wilson.
The group of students was taken through an hour of drills, before finishing up with some games to consolidate what they learned. Frankie said her favourite positions on court are goal shoot and goal attack, while Payton’s are goal attack and centre.
