The children of Heath View primary school in Eastmoor have been enjoying time in the Wildcats’ mobile classroom over the past 6 weeks.
As a reward for their hard work the pupils were treated to a special surprise last week. On the Monday, Wednesday and Thursday sessions of Children in Need funded ‘Give it a TRY: Aim High’ programme, the children were given the chance to interview a member of the first team squad, who had kindly taken time out of their busy schedule to visit the school. The interviews form part of the literacy and IT skills improvement that the children are developing whilst attending the mobile classroom.
Wildcats’ French International Julien Rinaldi was interviewed by the children on Monday, with some excellent questions being asked by all. The pupils found out that Julien is an avid fan of cooking and that he holds ambitions to one day open a French restaurant in Australia. Other players that stopped by were Michael Korkidas and Luke George. The children spent some time with the players once the interviews had concluded and all received a personalised autographed picture and an opportunity to have their photo taken with the first team stars.
Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust Manager Davide Longo said “I would like to thank the players for their efforts this week. It’s always great to see the players and children enjoying some time together, whilst also developing new skills”.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
