Soprano Laura Wright visits Alde Valley Academy

This week saw Suffolk soprano, Laura Wright, stop off at Alde Valley Academy on a national tour of schools in areas she will be visiting for her current UK run of shows.  She took part in a game of rugby with the students; something that she is doing at each school, aimed at driving up participation in the sport – particularly girls.

Laura is the England team’s official national anthem singer, she set up a girl’s squad for rugby when she was a pupil of Framlingham College and currently plays full back for Rosslyn Park Ladies.

The pupils had a great time and Laura said: “It’s really special to be involved in a project like this.”
