17/01/17 - SESP Kingspan Stadium Visit
As part of Newtownhamilton High School's involvement with SESP, some of our Year 8 pupils as well as pupils from St Paul's Bessbrook and Newry High School travelled to the home of Ulster Rugby: Kingspan Stadium.
During the visit, the boys were given a very detailed and informative tour of the stadium, learning about the history, construction and ongoing development. The boys were given exclusive tours of the home/away changing rooms, press conference areas and were allowed to run through the tunnels that lead onto the pitch!
The boys were shown the extensive facilities that Ulster Rugby has access to and were fortunate enough to watch some of Ulster Rugby's up and coming stars train in the state of the art gym - as well as spying on a few of the current starting 15 during an outdoor fitness session.
A trip to the Nevin Spence Centre concluded the day and the boys finished off their trip to Kingspan Stadium with an iPad workshop and the opportunity to look around the Rugby Museum as well as the chance to play a few of the interactive rugby simulators!
Overall a very enjoyable day which was both very informative for all the boys and good opportunity to further develop positive relationships through SESP.
