Declan Clarke has been selected to attend the England v Italy RBS 6 Nations match on Sunday 26th February 2017.
He will be the only student attending this once in a lifetime experience where he will unveil The Chalk Hills Academy’s new bespoke Rugby shirt designed by Canterbury.
The day will be very exciting and not only will he unveil the shirt we have designed he will be part of the pre-match entertainment displaying a giant shirt in front of the 82,000 spectators.
Declan has been selected as a reward for his excellent attitude and participation in Rugby extra-curricular activities and fixtures this academic year. Declan has been a key part of the development of rugby in the academy, representing the school at all fixtures and attending rugby clubs regularly, Declan came to Chalk Hills already playing at Dunstable RFC. Declan decided to give rugby a try in year six, encouraged by his dad who used to play, and has played ever since. Now in his second full season of playing, he quickly learnt that he had a talent for the sport, he is currently the Under 13s Captain at Dunstable and has held this position for both seasons he has been there. Most recently Declan has been put on a DPP (Developing Player Programme) with Northampton Saints, which is a huge achievement in itself with such a prominent rugby club. Hopefully there will be great things to come for Declan, and fully deserves to represent the academy as an ambassador for rugby for the future.
