Year 10 take part in the Project Rugby Festival
Year 10 Project Rugby students travelled to the StoneX Stadium in north London, which is home of Saracens RFC to take part in the Project Rugby Festival. Project Rugby is a rugby programme delivered by Richard Bright from the Exeter Chiefs Community rugby programme during PE lessons throughout this year. During the day, the students listened to a Q&A from a panel including former England international Jack Clifford and hosted by the BBC’s Jill Douglas! This was followed by the obligatory PR shots via a drone as the event was also celebrating the 75,000th participant involved in the Project Rugby programme. Once the publicity was done, a touch tournament ensued, in which our students played against representatives from Newcastle Falcons, Worcester Warriors and Northampton Saints. The tournament was all about playing in the spirit of the game, with participation and enjoyment being the main focus. All the students represented the College and themselves extremely well in what was a long day!
