Your News Bees get out in the community

Bees have been inspirational on the pitch of late winning their last 5 league games in convincing fashion, however it was they that were shown a thing or two about aspirations when some of the team visited Hall Green Infant School (last Friday, 21.11.08).

Present to help launch the School’s “Our Aspirations” scheme Bees players Alex Davidson, Andy Daish, Sam Brown, Shaun Pammenter and Chris Brightwell took some time away from training to talk to the children about their own aspirations and how they’ve achieved some of them in becoming professional sportsmen.

Some challenging questions from the Hall Green children left no stone unturned as dietary habits, training schedules and “is rugby better than football?” topics were all explored.

“The kids were absolutely fantastic, inquisitive and thoughtful” commented Bees PR Manager Jo Kilby “...we had a great time and to hear the cheers of “Bees, Bees, Bees” as everyone headed out to break-time to throw some balls around and sign some autographs was brilliant.”

Deputy Head Teacher Nick Lamorte seconded the morning’s success: “The feedback from staff and the children was AMAZING! They sent a really positive message and spoke so well to the children. Everyone just loved having the players in class and they made playtime a really special event. We were so pleased that they not only reinforced "Our Aspirations" but also lots of the values we teach too!”

The Bees team provided each child with a team flyer and a free ticket to their next home game on the 6th December (vs. Tynedale) with one condition - they have to promise to keep up their “Bees” chant and help cheer the team to a win.

Supplementary information:

Hall Green Infant School “Our Aspirations” programme was created by talking with children, parents and teachers about what skills and abilities the children need to succeed as individuals and as part of the global community in the 21st century.
