Saracens Men & Women surprise kids on return to Saracens High School
Players from the Saracens Men and Saracens Women squads helped the Saracens High School celebrate the return of its pupils into school last week by providing every pupil and every teacher with a Saracens shirt.
Alex Lewington, Elliott Obatoyinbo, Eloise Hayward, Marlie Packer and Sarah McKenna all visited the school last Thursday afternoon after the pupils had gone home for the day, leaving a blue Saracens shirt on every desk for the pupils to find the next morning.
Saracens High School Principle Dr Stevens said, “Saracens do this so well. We really feel part of the family. The children this morning were over the moon weren’t they and so surprised and delighted by the shirts”.
Yusra, a Year 9 pupil said, “I felt really privileged to have it (the Saracens shirt) because it made me feel part of the family and it welcomed me back from online sessions.”
Saracens and England Women’s player Marlie Packer added, “The staff have done an incredible job to adapt, still pushing the students learning. I think they’ve had a 96% attendance through zoom.”
As a club we are extremely proud of the achievements of the Saracens High School staff and pupils and we hope you will join us in congratulating them on their achievements during this latest lockdown.
