On Tuesday 18 November eight of our children set off from Bonus Pastor Catholic College to embark on a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the Manu Samoa Rugby Union team. Our children, along with the Bonus Pastor rugby teams, travelled by coach to a sports ground in Teddington, where we were met by the Samoan team.
The children were taken on a training session where they learnt to run with, and pass, the rugby ball. Afterwards the children from both schools presented gifts to the Samoan team before having the chance to talk to the Samoan players and get as many autographs as they could.
The trip was an unqualified success and we'd like to say a huge thank you to Mrs. Holden and Bonus Pastor Catholic College who provided our coach transport. We also need to say thank you to our very own parents, Mel Ruggeri and Martin Falaniko, who arranged this fantastic day out for the children and staff.
