Arnold Foundation Students in Washington

Funds raised by the Rugbeian Community of North America sponsored the places of two Arnold Foundation students on a recent trip to Washington. Grace (RB) and Nile (C) have been members of Rugby School for two and five years respectively, and were hugely grateful for the support of Rugbeians and Biltonians in America for supporting their travels. 

On Monday 23 October Rugby School students, teachers and alumni met on the banks of the Potomac River, near the Jefferson Memorial to complete a Global Pass for the bicentenary. The group consisted of Chair of the Rugbeian Community of North America - David Harding (W 72-76), Board Member Rob Smart (W 65-68) and Rugbeians Tom Vacher (St 83-88) and Simon Glossop (SH 87-89) as well as 12 students currently studying A Level History and Politics. The students were accompanied by teachers Anna Griffiths and Paul Teeton as well as Director of the Rugbeian Community, Katy Steventon.

The group enjoyed pizzas and drinks in the warm Washington sun and shared stories about the school in the 60s, 70s and 80s where Arnold Foundation student, Grace, said "It was great to hear their stories about their time at the school and what they've done since."
