Snooker visits

With the Look North team

Mark Allen, UK snooker champion 2022 and this year’s Champion of Champions winner, came to visit our school just before the start of this year’s UK snooker championships in York. A selected group of pupils from Key Stage 2 took part in a question and answer session before playing a bit of snooker themselves. We were joined on the day by Look North and a BBC production team.

The BBC also returned a few days later to do another snooker piece with some KS2 pupils which was aired during the semi final of this year’s championships.

All pupils involved in both snooker events were funny, polite and engaging. They were a really credit to our school. Well done Fishergaters!
