Rugby World Cup sparks the imagination in Primary!

With sport being such an important part of life at Wycombe Abbey School, Changzhou: the Rugby World Cup, the third biggest sporting quadrennial sporting event in the world, this year being held in Japan, has presented a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to continue to develop their love of sport.

This past Monday, all 108 of our Primary boarders were issued with either a WASCZ netball (girls) or WASCZ rugby ball (boys), to use for their own enjoyment and to practice their passing and catching skills ahead of their ECAs and training sessions and competitive rugby and netball matches later in the year.

As well as practicing their balls skills, many of the primary boarders were very interested in watching Rugby World Cup matches, which were shown live on screens at school. The questions they asked of staff showed a real thirst for information and a desire to develop their knowledge of the game.

Along with the Changzhou to Tokyo fitness challenge, it is set to be a very energetic next few weeks in the Primary school!
