A group of very enthusiastic Year 3 and 4 girls have just completed a half term programme of tag-rugby coaching, with Ale, linked with Waterloo Rugby Club. The pupils have developed their skills and have also shown an excellent understanding of the game. It is hoped that some girls will move across to Waterloo Rugby Club’s junior section at the weekends, to further develop their existing rugby talent.
This tag-rugby project is aimed at girls becoming more involved in competitive sport with next half term’s programme for Year 5 and 6 girls. Our Lady Immaculate is supporting ‘This Girl Can’, a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
Well done to all of our girls who have taken part so far!
