Prospective Pupils Try Tag Rugby
Year 5 and Year 6 pupils from local primary schools enjoyed an introduction to the sport of Rugby when they took part in Princethorpe's Try Tag Rugby event.
The after-school session took place on Friday 20 January and was organised by the College's PE team on a cold all-weather pitch.
Working in small groups, with Sixth Form students and coaching staff, the children started with some fun warm up activities. They then enjoyed skill building drills before finishing with a mini game. Of course, after all that energetic fun the youngsters were sent on their way clutching certificates and legendary Princethorpe cookies.
Assistant Head Co-curricular, Neil McCollin, was impressed at how well the children took to the sport commenting, “It was fantastic to have so many enthusiastic boys and girls here on a Friday afternoon. They had a great time getting to grips with Tag Rugby, quickly mastering the game.”
The successful workshop was just one of a series of activities and opportunities the College organises for prospective pupils to introduce and familiarise youngsters with the school. Next up on the sporting front is Princethorpe’s High 5 Netball Tournament for local schools on Tuesday 7 March and then in the Trinity Term we are offering our Say Hello to Hockey event for Year 4 and 5 children on Saturday 13 May and our local schools U10 Football Tournament on Monday 22 May.
