Just a quick thank you for all those schools who attended our CPRFC local schools rugby festivals this academic year. It was great seeing so many pupils playing and enjoying competitive rugby. For many of these pupils, it was their first time experiencing rugby outside of their PE lessons.

For me personally, it was at times difficult to get full teams out at the start, yet now, pupils from all year groups are asking me on a daily basis “when is the next game”! I also have four pupils who have taken up rugby outside of school because they enjoyed the experience that they gained through these festivals.

Many thanks from the club for the time you’ve spent organising these, Ian.
