Show your colours for the Rugby World Cup!!

The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be the ninth Rugby World Cup, and is to be held in Japan from 20 September to 2 November. This will be the first time the tournament is to be held in Asia, and outside the traditional heartland of rugby union.

As an official RFU affiliated school, it would be almost illegal if we didn't celebrate the competition and so on Friday September 20th, we are asking all our children to come to school wearing the colours of their designated team. 

The teams are as follows:

Reception:  Australia, Tonga, Argentina

Year 1:         Fiji, Japan, Ireland

Year 2:         Russia, Samoa, England

Year 3:         Scotland, NAmibia, USA

Year 4:         Uruguay, New Zealand, WAles

Year 5:         Canada, South Africa, Georgia

Year 6:         France, Italy, Referees

All you have to do is come to school wearing the colours of any of your national teams and donate £1 - or as much as you can. The money raised will be put towards new PE equipment.
