England Mananger Sven Goran Eriksson and his partner Nancy Dell’Olio came to Eltham Green School to highlight the work of Truce International, a charity that both are involved in which seeks to bring communities together through football.
Welcoming Sven and Nancy to Eltham, Clive Efford explained that this was a proud day for Eltham Green School. “Since becoming a Specialist Sports College the School has gone from strength to strength. In April 2004 Ofsted concluded that Eltham Green was ‘a very effective and rapidly improving school with a high proportion of good and very good teaching’.
Sports College funding has enabled the School to create a Dance Studio and a fitness gym, both equipped to professional standards.
Clive also took the opportunity to wish Sven and the England football team the best of luck in the world cup in the summer saying “we are becoming used to success here at Eltham Green and I wish the same for Sven and the team.”
