Zita aims for Paris

A 16-year-old pupil from Bebington High is aiming for success after her recent selection for the Team GB discus squad and she is seeking people’s help to achieve that goal.

Zita Aspell said: “I’m really proud and excited to have been given the chance to represent my country in the Catholic Schools Games in Paris and I am hoping to do well”

“I’ve made four metre improvements consecutively over the last six years, which is what the team selectors were looking for.

“Provisional entries indicate that teams from Austria, Brazil, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Malta and Hungary will be there.”

But the cost of funding her entry to the completion without outside support is out of Zita’s reach, so her family and friends are hoping with the help and kindness of people they can reach the target needed to be able to help send Zita to Paris.

To reach this goal they have set up a gofundme page at

The competition runs from July 8 -14 and Zita needs to raise over £1,000 to pay for entry, travel and accommodation costs.

Paul Conley head of PE at Bebington High Sports College, said: “Zita has worked really hard to get this far, and has been a dedicated athlete since Year 7”.

Mr Jordan headteacher of Bebington High Sports College said: “Zita is an exemplary student and a great ambassador for Bebington High Sports College, and we wish her well in the competition. The school, of course will help with funding and we will make a donation on behalf of the school”.
