Tag Rugby

The tag rugby team have had a marvellous few weeks! They were runners up in our local competition which took them through to the next round, competing for Bury South. Again, the team played fantastically well and took the runners up place. This success earned them a place in the Greater Manchester School Games, competing for Bury. This final tournament began with an impressive opening ceremony at the Athletics Stadium at Eastlands in Manchester. Key 103 hosted the event and the children were treated to a performance by Rizzle Kicks, amazing gymnastics trick by 2 British team members, an inspirational speech from a member of the England Olympic hockey team, and many entertaining dances and songs. We were then transported to Broughton Park Rugby Club for an afternoon of competition against schools from all over Greater Manchester. The standard of play was incredibly high and although we scored plenty of tries, we did not progress through to the final. Despite this, the children thoroughly enjoyed this memorable day competing in the sunshine, showing tremendous team spirit, determination and energy! Well done to all the pupils involved.
