16 Nov Wembley – England vs. U.S.A.
As you may know, 40 children and 9 members of staff went to watch England play a friendly international match against U.S.A. as a recognition for good behaviour last half term. This was made even more special by the announcement that the very well-known Wayne Rooney was to play his final ever match for England! He wore the number 10 shirt and the captain’s band with pride in the second half.
Both the children and the adults were incredibly excited! Although due to traffic, we missed kick off, it was as if England was waiting for Holy Trinity’s arrival! Just 5 minutes after we sat down the first goal to victory was scored and the crowds were on their feet. The atmosphere was buzzing and the children were really in the spirit of the game and unity. For some of the children and the staff this was the first ever time attending such a high profile event in one of the world’s most famous stadiums.
The children’s behaviour was absolutely exemplary and they are testament to the school.
Thank you to all the parents who came out into the cold very late at night to collect some very tired, but satisfied children.
A huge thank you to all the staff who made it so special for the children!
