As part of the All Schools England Rugby programme three students travelled to Reading on Thursday 6th October to take part in a workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to design a Canterbury custom-designed rugby shirt for the Academy.
Canterbury will then make this design and produce a set of 20 unique shirts for our rugby team. Leon Diamond, Edward Humphries and Morgan Stokes all worked together to produce a ‘Shine Bright’ inspired shirt. It incorporates our Isle of Wight heritage by using the Needles lighthouse which shines across the shirt in Ryde Academy colours. We love it!
The shirts will be ready in time for a grand unveiling at the Six Nations in February. We look forward to seeing them progress from drawings to the real thing!
