Town Launch New Schools Scheme
Monday, 29th Jul 2019 18:49
Town have launched a new schools scheme aimed at Year 2 pupils in Ipswich and across Suffolk ahead of the new season entitled Class of Blues.
Introduced in addition to the School of the Day initiative which will continue during 2019/20, Class of Blues will see pupils from a particular primary school invited to Portman Road for a tour of the stadium with their visit also including an educational programme allowing the children to further their numeracy, literacy, speaking and listening skills in a football-related environment.
Pupils will receive a certificate commemorating their trip to Portman Road, as well as an adult and junior ticket to attend the next home fixture.
Suffolk Norse are partnering Town for the initiative and have agreed to be the schools transport provider conveying pupils to and from the stadium for the tour.
Class of Blues will initially be run over six games throughout the season, however, this club say this could be increased.
The six fixtures are Tranmere Rovers (Saturday 28th September), Bury (Saturday 2nd November), Accrington Stanley (Saturday 11th January), Peterborough United (Saturday 1st February), Coventry City (Saturday 7th March) and Southend United (Saturday 4th April) with tour dates likely to be the Wednesday preceding the fixture.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
