As part of the RFU All Schools Initiative St Mary’s students travelled to Ryton RUFC to take part in the Canterbury Kit Design Day. As part of the RFU programme 3 students (Ben Jubb, Jack Pilling, James Hepburn) were given the opportunity to work directly with Canterbury designers to come up with a new strip which will be created and delivered for the Y8, 9 and 10 rugby teams later in the year. With a range of options on par with high level club and international sides the students worked hard to come up with a range of designs using inspiration from a wide variety of club and international shirts, including the recently released England Rugby shirt. The boys worked hard on the day and collaborated well, eventually coming up with a design that they all agreed was the best for the school.
We look forward to seeing the completed versions in early February!
