Westonzoyland Primary School pupils get Old Trafford call-up
IMAGINE being back at school and your teacher telling you: “Today children, we’re off to watch Manchester United”.
Well that’s exactly what happened for 53 lucky youngsters at Westonzoyland Primary School.
The school was offered late discounted tickets for the Red Devils’ Champions League match against German side Bayer Leverkusen in September, and took a quick decision to use some of its sports funding to pay for the trip.
The 53 boys and girls were accompanied by 18 adults, including staff and parents.
The children had a wonderful time, made better by the fact the match was full of excitement, as Manchester United won by four goals to two.
Back in school, the pupils made display boards and wrote about their trip.
Jason Eveleigh, head teacher, said: “The trip was inspirational in every way and very well led – I am delighted that we were able to seize such a great opportunity for our children.”
