The children demonstrated perfect manners upon receiving their special City bookmarks!
Reception and Year 1 students also got a fantastic surprise when our football stars joined them for their PE lessons and showed them how to work better together as a team.
The visit came to a close with an inspirational whole school Q&A session with Eric, Jeremie and Yeboah. The players shared their top tips for success, gave advice for overcoming adversity and explained how school played a major role in getting them to where they are now.
The City stars were so impressed by the attitude and behaviour of Blackley’s stars that they even left us with a signed shirt, which will go up on display in the academy!
