We had a lovely surprise yesterday when ex-pupil Ben Smith came to present the school with one of his All Black jerseys. It was the jersey he wore in the recent test against Argentina (his 34th test). We were delighted to receive the jersey which we will have framed and displayed in the foyer. Ben encouraged the children to try any sports that they were interested in. He talked about the fond memories he had of his time at Abbotsford School. Ben told the children that “The All Black jersey is special to all of us who play in it. Hopefully you guys will treasure it too”. Thank you Ben, we certainly will. Well done to Logan Whitty who wrote to Ben requesting that he donate the jersey.
