Twickenham Rugby Trip 2014

On a clear, calm and crisp winter morning fourteen pupils departed school bound for the capital.  Our final destination, Twickenham Stadium to watch England take to the field against Australia in the final match of the QBE Autumn International rugby matches.  As the excited group of pupils and  staff made the long journey talk of victory was in air.

The first victory came early on as Evan Breen won a Minion and Tigger toy on the crane grab game in Taunton Deane services.  A feat which few have seen.  Suitably refreshed after breakfast we continued up the A303 in sunshine daring to think that England may continue our winning day.  At Fleet the group enjoyed haute cuisine at KFC whilst watching an impromptu game of rugby between the boys.  All marvelled at the Tanswell sidestep as he danced around trees.  After lunch Mr Loder took the wheel for the final push into London.

Our luck ran out as traffic breakdowns and queues held up our progress.  But after a short stroll from the car park we made our way through the Fan Village toward the main gate of Twickenham Stadium.  We made our way to our seats where we collected our supporters flags and settled down to sing the national anthem with pride, passion and power.  The match was an exciting occasion for the pupils, some of whom had not been to such an event.  Although England were perhaps fortunate, our winning day continued as they won by nine points at the final whistle.

After a quick trip to the stadium shop for some retail therapy we made our way back through the crowds to the car park and started the journey home.  Dark, foggy and seemingly endless but eventually we were back in Cornwall and making our ways home to bed after a long but enjoyable day.  The pupils were a credit to the school and parents and we look forward to the next opportunity to take pupils on a similar trip.

Thank you to Miss Bunyan and Mrs Bolton for their hard work in the trip.
