Rotherham United’s, Hakeem Odoffin joins us for a surprise visit with our partnering school, Redscope Primary.
Rotherham United Trust have been working in partnership with Redscope Primary throughout the 2022/23 academic year. RUCST staff members have been delivering a range of sessions from physical education to protect the planet social action projects & extra curricular sessions. All of which have a positive impact on the health & wellbeing of the pupils as well as support the school to educate local young people in a range of PSHE subjects.
Rotherham United first team player, Hakeem Odoffin visited the school to see the great work the pupils have been doing and give the pupils chance to ask an elite athlete questions about his lifestyle, offering inspiration and a great role model for the young people to aspire to be in the future. The school has a lot of Rotherham United fans who cherished meeting Hakeem.
Here at Rotherham United we work very closely with our local primary schools, offering a range of exciting and engaging provision opportunities. It is important to have people like Hakeem and the club show their support for what we are doing, these young children respond well to advise and guidance from a professional athlete.
The Head Teacher of Redscope Primary School, Alison Bradbury said,
“Thank you so much for sorting the player visit today. The children absolutely loved it, and Hakeem was a wonderful ambassador for the club”
Sports Participation Manager, Johnathan Gilberthorpe
“It is a pleasure working with the pupils & staff at Redscope Primary, all really support the education RUCST provide in the school to go above and beyond to ensure the children really get the best opportunities. It was a pleasure to see the smiles on the pupils faces meeting Hakeem, he was great with the pupils who all left the school excited to tell their friends and family that they had met one of the RUFC players”
