Brilliant morning thanks to 1st and 5th Fusiliers
This is the second year that the men from the Fusiliers have visited Balliol. The Fusiliers are Infantry troops who are actively involved in current conflicts. Panther class were very lucky as they had some football training with the super fit troops! Mr Longstaff assures me that our children held their own!
It was such a lovely day that the soldiers performed for the whole school in our yard. They play fife and drums at numerous state occasions. We hope our neighbours enjoyed it! The children absolutely loved the atmosphere and drama of their playing. It was a really special experience. The men then spent time in every class, letting the children play instruments and try on some of their uniform.
A huge Balliol thank you to the 1st and 5th Fusiliers.
