Students at Henry Beaufort had a memorable PE class when a former Rugby Union international put them through their paces.
Junior Paramore won more than 30 caps for Samoa, and also played in the New Zealand sevens side. He also turned out for Gloucester and Bedford before retiring in 2006 to take up coaching. He now plies his trade in Bournemouth, but agreed to visit Henry Beaufort School to share his vast experience of the game.
During the class, the former Gloucester number eight, who scored 33 tries for the club, taught youngsters how to improve their game. The session was designed for year 9 and 10 pupils, while some younger ones came along to watch.
Science teacher, Richard Mordecai, who coaches the school’s year 10 and 11 rugby team said: “It was a brilliant session. Having a player of Junior Paramore’s stature coming to coach at Henry Beaufort School is absolutely fantastic. We aim to get him back next term.”
