VIDEO: World Cup at Shoeburyness High School

Southend Standard: World Cup at Shoebury High School with Rachel O'Brien World Cup at Shoebury High School with Rachel O'Brien

The World Cup was at Shoeburyness High School today as a surprise for a dedicated teacher. 

The 2014 FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola flew into Southend to begin a week-long celebration around GB.

Southend is the first stop of the seven day 2014 FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by
Coca-Cola in Great Britain but it’s a complete surprise for the community; nobody knows that the Trophy is coming.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has been awarded to Southend teacher and StreetGames coach Rachael O’Brien by Coca-Cola for her tireless work in supporting disadvantaged teenagers in the community.

The official FIFA plane landed at Southend Airport ahead of the visit and a Samba performance was held at the school when the cup arrived.

Shame shoeburyness high didn't arrange a better way for pupils to see the world cup.Instead of bringing them out in groups the school just let them come 'willy nilly' My son is 6foot and only got glimpses of the world cup as he was at the back and so the first years next to him had little chance of seeing it.

You are a bitter and twisted individual. For the record my son walks to school each day. I dare say your son is one of those who is always attention seeking and runs home and tells mummy when he can't get his own way. He needs to man up luvvie.

It was lovely to see and all the children got to have a free photo taken with it. They all queued up patiently and were only allowed once, so everyone had a fair chance.
Some people will always find something to moan about

Lol this parent knows nothing . This wasn't what happened at all. My nephew is in year 7 at Shoebury and they weren't even in there with the older kids. They got to see the World Cup later in the day when all the bigger kids had gone. He had his photo taken with it so I know he had a very clear view.

I personally feel as part of Shoeburyness High School that this was an amazing experience. I don't like football but being able to see the World Cup and have a photo with it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It was very well organised as each year group went out one at different times. I was at the very back and still got to see it. Well done to the organizers and thank you for an amazing opportunity.
