Shebbear XV's 41 - 12 Bideford RFC.

Shebbear continued their unbeaten run, stemming from the previous season, in style under the lights away from home. Shebbear started the game very well and tries from Will Cowan-Dickie, Zoltan Wagner, Ted Trott, Sione Funaki (2), Ollie Arden and Jake Weeks sealed a convincing win in the second game of the season. We were also delighted to welcome some new faces making their first XV debut Will Bromell and Nathan Coates.

Men of the match: Jake Weeks and Jason Man

Thank you to Bideford Rugby Club for hosting tonight's game.

*** Prep School Round-Up ***

Kindness has been the theme across the Prep School this week. Pre-School and Year 5 have had their first swimming sessions of the term and Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a day at
Meeth Nature Reserve.

Congratulations to our group of BAFTA winners (Behaviour Award For Thoughtful Actions) and our Musician of the Week. Year 6 joined Pre-Prep this week for their first buddy reading session in which the children read to each other, talked about their books and enjoyed spending their time together.

Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, some of our Prep pupils have donated their pocket money to help the aid effort, raising a total of £65.00 so far, rounding the week off with an act of kindness as it began. #ShebbearCollege #PrepSchool #BAFTA #kindness #family #MeethNatureReserve #HurricaneIrma
