'The Cup' Comes to School

Last year we were proud when the New Zealand All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup.  
Read our post about the competition here.
Yesterday, the Rugby World Cup Roadshow came to our school.
A few people in the school won the chance to hold the cup by answering questions. 
They had to wear gloves because only members of the winning teams can actually touch the cup!
We all got to have a class photo taken with the cup.

We think we are all champions!

What does it mean to be a champion?
Have you ever been a champion?


  1. Dear B4
    Holy moly, guys that’s a once in a life time opportunity! You guys must have been really be proud to have held the world cup. I wish that I could be there the Webb Ellis trophy. To be a champion you have to work you guts out think positively and never give up. We are the champions and it feels great.

  2. Dear Mrs McKenzie and B4

    You are so lucky to get a photo with the “Rugby World Cup”. I wish our school got to see the cup. I have not been a champion yet, but I would like to be one sometime. A champion is where you never give up and just persist /strive to you get there.
    What was it like seeing the Rugby World Cup in person?


  3. Dear Open the Door to B4,

    I think that being a champion means that you have achieved something that makes you feel proud.
    In my opinion, being a champion is not about beating others. It is about reaching goals and high standards that you have set. I once felt like a champion when I reached my goal of getting a player of the day in sport.

    Your blogging buddy,

  4. Hi B4,

    This sounds exciting! Getting to see the cup in person and especially holding it! Was it heavy? Was it shiny? Did you see any of the rugby players’ finger prints on it?

    I think being a champion is to have achieved something big or small that you are very proud of. I have been a champion a few times but never at school unless you count being better at reading and maths than you thought. I have won a few pony club competitions, and at shows, I come first sometimes against people that are older than me. I am proud of that.
