World Cup Fever

Celebrated children's author Tom Palmer visited the Junior School and stirred up Rugby World Cup excitement with themed workshops and activities. 

The highlight of the day was Tom’s thrilling indoor penalty taking competitions where the winners were awarded a ‘Rugby Reading Game’ trophy. There was much competition and enthusiasm amongst the Junior School boys to compete for these coveted prizes.
