Burnt Mill goes Rugby World Cup crazy

Burnt Mill Academy / Mon 28th Sep 2015 at 01:32pm

THE start of the Rugby World Cup was celebrated by Harlow students with a special haka.

The whole of Year 8 at Burnt Mill Academy, in First Avenue, choreographed their own version of the traditional New Zealand All Black’s war cry dance.

The school has gone rugby crazy, with every faculty bringing the sporting event into lessons – from cooking meals from around the world, to Top Trumps in English and maths and forces of the game in science.

Dan Bolt, lead practitioner PE, said: “Instead of getting students to do the original haka, we allowed them to be creative in their dance lessons and to come up with their own version.

“The whole school has got behind the Rugby World Cup to promote the social and cultural side of the games as well as the economic impact it has. For me, as a PE teacher, it’s also an opportunity to raise awareness of rugby and to celebrate another event like London 2012 being held in this country. I want our students to get involved in sport and to support our country at events like these.”
