Manchester Ice Hockey Players Raise a Storm!

This afternoon (20/10/17) our special guests during assembly were two members of the Manchester Storm 1st Team.  Canadians Shane Bakker and Matt Stanisz form part of the team that currently sit on top of the National League Table.  Here they are sitting with one of our Year 1 pupils who plays for the Under Nines Storm Academy – and very happy they all look!

Shane and Matt captivated the whole school with their brilliant assembly and even found time to invite one of our Reception pupils to try on a full Ice Hockey strip.

Trying on the Strip

The players have offered special opportunities to the children and their families to come down to a Manchester Storm match in the near future – something I am sure that many children will want to do.

Our warm thanks go to Shane and Matt for giving up some of their very valuable time to tell us more about this fascinating sport and answering all of the fabulous questions our children posed.  The very best of luck to the team for the rest of the season!
