Special Event - A Visit From Baggie Bird

July 2010

Children from St John Bosco Primary School were visited by the mascot of West Bromwich Albion, 'Baggie Bird', to have fun, improve their football skills and raise money for a good cause.

Each class from Nursery up to Year 6 took turns to take penalties at Baggie bird. Everyone who scored 3 out of 3 went into a sudden death shoot out with the winner in each class receiving a medal. Baggie Bird also mixed with the children at playtime and lunchtime to play football and have his photo taken with them.

In return for the penalties and being able to wear football kit for the day, each child made a small donation which will be sent to a partner school in Gambia which was visited earlier in the year by our headteacher, Mr Masterson, and is the school's nominated charity.

Everyone who took part had a great time and enjoyed meeting Baggie Bird, even those who don't support WBA. Thanks to the team from The Albion Foundation for organising the day.
