The 2,000 Attendance Challenge!

11 posts in this topic

Class 7 at Kingfisher Primary School are proud to announce they will be official match sponsors of the Rugby League Championship fixture between Doncaster and Rochdale at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday 25th May 2014, kick off 3.00pm.

Instead of paying to become sponsors, the school have accepted a challenge to increase the attendance at the fixture to more than 2000 people. This challenge has been linked to maths and English lessons. The children have already written persuasive letters to all primary schools in Doncaster in an attempt to encourage children to attend the game. In addition to this the class will be create persuasive radio adverts, produce posters and write part of the match day programme.

The school are planning a number of exciting events that will add to the excitement of the fixture including a cheerleading competition, performance from the school choir and demonstration of skills from pupils at the school.

In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the Don’s promotion to the top division of rugby a “curtain raiser” game between a group of school teachers and a Dons Legends team (made up of some of the promotion winning team) will take place before the game. There are also plans to show the game against Batley, from April 1994, in the supporters bar after the main match.

This partnership between Kingfisher and Doncaster Rugby League club is a great example of how schools can highlight to children the different opportunities that exist within the sporting world and at the same time demonstrates how the Dons are committed to high quality community engagement.

For ticket information please call 01302762576.

This is a really great and original idea. Hopefully it will work to increase the crowd.

Well it's a good idea but at the end of it all, it's the parents who decide whether they go or not..

Let's hope those kids can write persuasively then!

I'm teaching kids instructional writing at the moment. I might go with:

1. First, politely ask mum or dad if they'll take you to the rugby.

2. Then, dramatically plead with them how much it means to you.

3. Finally, sulk emotionally until they cave in.

4. Repeat step 1 next week.

Great stuff! I still feel the pain of that day at Mount Pleasant though...

 

Beautifully sunny, 6,000 (ish) sell-out, great atmosphere, wrong result :)

Seriously, though, I'd be interested to see what the kids do for this project.
