A day out at the Stadium of Light | February 14, 2022

The children with the players including Jermain Defoe.

Due to their sporting achievements and attitudes in PE last term, 12 children were selected for a special visit to watch the Sunderland vs Doncaster Rovers football match at the Stadium of Light.

Along with Mr Spoors and Miss Scott, the children had a visit around the stadium, played football in the Beacon of Light and even got a photo with some players, including Jermain Defoe.

The children had the amazing opportunity to go onto the pitch and wave the flags for when the players entered onto the pitch to start the game, in front of 38,000 people.

We had a wonderful match day experience, despite the result, and the staff at the Stadium praised their fantastic behaviour.
