Gloucester Rugby visit Linden!

We were delighted to have  Ben Donnell, Charlie Chapman and Josh Hathaway from Gloucester Rugby join us at Linden for a Q & A assembly with the whole school as well as leading a short rugby skills session with Year 5 as part of their PE lesson.

Prior to the visit, classes discussed questions they’d like to ask and shared these with the School Council who then asked the questions in the assembly.  It was fascinating to hear about the player’s training sessions, the food they eat, the training they have to do as well as finding out some of their personal achievements in their own careers. Charlie Chapman shared his story of starting with Matson and Spartans Rugby Clubs as a child before joining the Gloucester Rugby DPP programme at the age of 13.  It was wonderful to hear this story and has given many of our pupils that have a love of playing rugby a sense that anything is possible if they put their mind to it!  Who knows, we may have a future Gloucester Rugby player here at Linden…
