A special reward day
Three Year 8s were nominated through teachers and senior leadership for a very special reward day at the Aon Training Centre. The students had shown 100% attendance, and exceeded expectations in classroom engagement.
Filming a video with partner UNICEF, each student was paired up with a Manchester United player, where as a team they had to shoot a ball at targets and make up a balanced meal of different food groups. They had an insight into behind the scenes at the training ground, and received signed pennants as a thank you for being film stars for the day.
On the day, Leighton said he “really enjoyed my day with Manchester United and United. I felt so happy to be there and everyone was so nice. I especially enjoyed meeting the players and doing the kicking challenge. It was the best day and I will never forget it.”
His mum added “I just want to thank Matt and everyone at Manchester United and Unicef for giving my son this opportunity. He had such a great experience; I know he will never forget it. I am grateful for the work that Matt and the Foundation do with our children and it shows that working hard and being the best person you can every day is rewarded with these fantastic experiences that children will treasure.”
