Three St Bonaventure’s students are to represent London at the National Basketball Championships in Manchester playing as the London Lions next month.

All three lads, Adrian Bernardo, Ethan-Jusef Taasin and Noah Myers are 13-years-old and currently in year eight.

The trio are also part of the team that saw St Bon’s crowned the under-13 National Handball Champions recently.

Nine boys have so far been selected with three more places to be announced soon.

Headteacher of St Bonaventure’s, Paul Halliwell, said: “Our Basketball and now Handball is a real strength of ours and for three of our boys to have been chosen to represent our city in a national competition is brilliant.

“This should really give them a boost and encourage them knowing that their talent has been recognised.

“We wish them lots of luck in Manchester.”
