THE HALLOWED Wembley Stadium turf has already been experienced by 20 youngsters at a St Albans school.

The pupils from Wheatfields Junior School braved the recent cold to take part in a tag rugby tournament before an international friendly rugby match at Wembley.

It was the first time many of the pupils had been to the new stadium and they were very excited. Two teams from the Marshalswick school, one made up of Year Five pupils and the other from Year Six, took part, with the older pupils winning all three of their games. Max Bull, one of the Year Six pupils, said: "At the end of the day, both of our teams played really well and we all enjoyed the experience of actually playing at Wembley."

l Younger children at Wheatfields Infants and Nursery School have been judged to be at the forefront of using information and communications technology (ICT).

Following an extensive assessment, the school has been awarded a prestigious ICT Mark by Becta, the Government-funded body responsible for promoting the use of ICT in Britain's schools and colleges.

It recognises the school's success in developing the strategic use of ICT in both administration and across the curriculum.
