29th Jun 2022
Students and staff were delighted to welcome Andrew Trimble, Ulster Rugby and Ireland star to host a Q&A and training session with members of Strangford Integrated College Rugby Club. Andrew is great ambassador for Integrated Education and very supportive of the growth and development of rugby within schools.  This year Strangford Integrated College will celebrate 25 years integrated education having opened it’s doors in 1997. Matthew Wallace, Teacher in charge of Rugby at Strangford Integrated College said: “The students were thrilled to meet Andrew Trimble, Ulster Rugby’s most capped player and had some really interesting questions for him.  Andrew is such a great role model for our young people and enjoyed interacting and chatting with our students. “Rugby is traditionally known as a sport for all, where everyone is welcome as a valued member of the club.  We are delighted to be growing as a club welcoming boys and girls to experience rugby.  We are appreciative of everyone who has come on board this year as sponsors and look forward to the new season ahead.” -ends-
