Luther Burrell, England Rugby Player, Visits Coleridge

On Monday 5 February, Coleridge Community College held a rugby promotion day in which over 300 students took part. Coaches from local rugby clubs, Cambridge, Cantabs and Northampton Saints, came into run stations for all the students.  In the afternoon the day was concluded with the visit of Rugby England International Luther Burrell, who held a question and answer session with the U16 Parkside Federation Team.  The aims of the day were to promote healthy, active lifestyle through team sports and link with the local Community, so students have a clear pathway to join a local club.

Celebration of Women’s Right to Vote

Parkside students and staff were visited by ITV Anglia News to take part in a celebration of 100 years since the first women in Britain were given the right to vote. Students were learning what attitudes towards women were like 100 years ago, and agree that attitudes have come a long way.

Sarah Drayton, Parkside Community College: “I think that quite often they (women) have legal equality – in terms of the law – but social opinions and how people actually think – it’s still prejudiced.”

Please take a look at the article and video here.
