Connaught pupils play rugby at Twickenham

Pupils from Oasis Academy Connaught were honoured to represent England’s Premiership Rugby team Bristol Bears and play on the pitch at Twickenham Stadium.

The ten Year 3 students and their teachers attended the event in June – taking part in a rugby match against other schools from across the country.

As well as the experience of playing sport in the famous stadium – the students also had the chance to watch the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final.

One of the students said: ““Twickenham was really fun because we got to play and be watched by lots of people… The best bit was playing on the pitch but the match was really good.” 

Principal of Oasis Academy Connaught, Mrs George Fraser, said:“Children and staff really enjoyed their day at Twickenham.

“They came back to school on the Monday full of excitement. Getting to play on the pitch and watch a finals match was just fantastic and an experience the children will always remember.”
