FOUR students from Pimlico Academy won the trip of a lifetime this week to teach tag rugby to kids in South Africa.
The four, who flew out from Heathrow on Tuesday, also plan to spread the word about police charity Child Victims of Crime (CVOC) to youngsters in Pretoria.
They form part of a 16-strong party of year nine boys and girls from three other English schools, who also get to watch the second British Lions Test on Saturday.
Pimlico's finest have already been active in helping their South African counterparts by donating rugby kit via the SOS Kit Aid scheme, and the Westminster school was visited in November by Springbok star Bryan Habana and former Lions wing Jason Robinson.
One of the four Pimlico students,
Tejell Leonel, a prop forward and captain of the school team, played three trial matches at the end of the season for the Wasps academy.
He said: "One of my PE teachers put my name forward for this, as they feel I have potential with my rugby-playing and leadership skills.
"I've been to the Seychelles but never South Africa, and I've no idea what to expect.
"I'm looking forward to practising tag rugby with kids out there and seeing how the CVOC charity works.
"We'll be going to watch the Lions match on Saturday, which is very exciting. My rugby coach and head of PE at school are both big rugby fans and are a little bit jealous!"
