Rugby Festival

Even though it was freezing cold St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary school pupils, parents and staff had a fantastic morning at the 22nd annual rugby festival at Upton school.

The team were given Argentina as their country and had great fun in the weeks leading up to the event making their banners and flags.

On the day, the team played well together, the skills and teamwork they had learnt in the lead up games was evidently on show. The highlight had to be the teacher’s demonstration match, the pupils chanting ‘Mr Williams, Mr Williams’ as they watched the teachers try to show them how it is supposed to be done.

It is fantastic for the year 6 pupils to have this opportunity to attend events like this at the end of their primary school years.
