Springboks Training

We went to Owen Delaney Park to see
the South African Rugby Team, the Springboks training.
Brendan Weatherley from Classic Hits radio was there, he gave us posters and threw balls and drink bottles into the crowd.
We all made small South African flags to wave and we took along our rugby balls in the hope of getting autographs.
Mrs Allen had bought a large South African flag for our class, we waved that too.
We even made a 'Broadlands School' banner to help us get noticed.

We saw lots of the team members up close and got heaps of photos and some autographs too.
It was a great outing.
We hope you enjoy watching our photostories.

A visit from two 'Baby Blacks'.

On Friday Sam Cane and Carl Axtens came to visit us.
They both played for the New Zealand Under 20 rugby team (the Baby Blacks) that won
 the Junior World Championships in Italy earlier this year.
They also happen to be ex-pupils of Broadlands School and cousins of Robbie, Joshua and Charlotte.

We had time out on the field together playing rugby and then they came into class to talk to us.
They showed us their team tops and their medals.
They answered our questions and then signed autographs for us.
It was a fantastic visit!!
