Excited pupils and staff from Oasis Academy Warndon, situated on the outside of Worcester City have been given the amazing opportunity to take part in a tag rugby demonstration with a number of other schools from across the country and to stay and watch the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final this coming weekend.
While two teams will battle it out at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 1st June, in a bid to be crowned Gallagher Premiership Rugby Champions, a host of youngsters including those from Oasis Academy Warndon will be starring throughout the day courtesy of Premiership Rugby’s community programmes.
As part of Premiership Rugby’s plan to improve a million lives, 310,000 people a year come into contact with one of their community initiatives.
Emily Hobson, Principal at Oasis Academy Warndon, commented on her excitement, saying; “This is an amazing opportunity for our pupils to see some of the biggest names in rugby and to take part in the Tackling Health demonstration before the game starts. We are all very excited, I will be supporting Exeter Chief’s as that’s where I went to university and have been to their stadium a number of times. It’s going to be a fantastic day for a number of our families."
The Academy has provided transport for all the pupils and parents, and pupils have been given the opportunity to take two guests with them each.
Kohry Yong, a pupil from Oasis Academy Warndon, added; “I’m so excited, it’s going to be a great day. I can’t wait to take part in the demonstration before the game starts.”
Before the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final kicks off, there will be a demonstration on the pitch from school children who are part of Tackling Health.
Delivered nationally by Premiership Rugby clubs across England, and in partnership with the Greggs Foundation, the key aims of the project are to improve young people’s understanding of what constitutes healthy eating and a healthy diet and to increase levels of physical activity.
There are 13 other schools taking part in the health initiative including Oasis Academy Warndon.
