On Tuesday 5th October, Trinity hosted the inaugural All Schools Rugby Festival for local primary school children. Nine schools brought Year 3 and 4 tag rugby teams to play in a festival against the other schools and to receive coaching from our Young Leaders.
The 27 Trinity pupils, from Fourth and Fifth Years took on roles such as team managers, coaches and referees. Each school played six matches and the children showed improvement throughout the day.
Each team took part in a skill zone in which they were coached by the Trinity boys in passing, catching, evasion and decision making. The feedback from primary school teachers and visiting parents was unanimous in their praise and gratitude towards Trinity and our Young Leaders for demonstrating empathy, enthusiasm, professionalism, and care for the visiting pupils.
Meanwhile, at Sandilands, another group of Trinity Young Leaders were working with Trinity Sports staff to deliver the IAPS U11 National Football qualifying event. Twelve Prep Schools from the local area were competing for three coveted spaces in the national final being held at the end of November.
Our referees for the day were Max Cormack, Fin Kennedy, Oliver Scarles and Dan Brown who took charge of all the matches. The rest of the Young Leaders helped with central timing, team management, and scoring.
“Trinity pupils were able to put into practice the work they had been doing in their PE lessons developing leadership skills.”
