ROARING youngsters prepared themselves for the Rugby World Cup by practicing their very own Haka.

MP Mark Pawsey visited Brownsover Community School and was treated to a special performance of their ‘Superhaka’ by pupils.

The children have been hard at work practicing their own Haka – the tribal dance made famous by the New Zealand ‘All Blacks’ rugby team – in anticipation of the upcoming Rugby World Cup, starting in September.

Head teacher Elisa Basnett said: “As part of our international and cultural development, the children have loved preparing and performing our ‘Superhaka’ in celebration of the Rugby World Cup. It has provided a fantastic creative and physical learning experience for all.”

Mr Pawsey said: “It was a fantastic performance and the pupils and teachers should be very proud of what they have already achieved in preparation for the Rugby World Cup celebrations: it cannot be an easy thing to co-ordinate.

“This is yet another example of how our town is embracing the Rugby World Cup. The excitement really is building and I, like so many other local residents, cannot wait for the tournament to begin.”
