Man Utd - Year 6
On Wednesday 27th September, Year 6 were invited to Old Trafford to support their environmental initiative. Pupils took part in a litter picking exercise in the North Stand where they collected and sorted over 1000 pieces of litter. As a result, they managed to raise £300 for the school’s charity, ‘Winston’s Wish’. Laura Flint, Education manager at Old Trafford asked the children about the charity and was extremely impressed with their articulation and passion for the charity’s fantastic work with bereaved children. She said that Manchester United would be proud to donate to such a fabulous and important cause.
Later in the day, the Y6 pupils were taken on a tour of Old Trafford and even got to try on some of the old kits belonging to legends such as Beckham, Ronaldo and Scholes to name but a few.
Even for those who are less enthusiastic about football (or those who are avid fans of rival clubs), the day turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable visit, fully appreciated by all who came along.
As always, the pupils represented our school perfectly and have happily participated in an extremely worthwhile exercise.
