Friday 10th March 2017 – Y5&6 Tag Rugby Competition
You can forget your Olympic Super Saturday. This week was Terrific Tuesday for Bishop’s Waltham Junior School and other local schools at the Pyramid School’s Rugby Tournament held at Droxford. The event was brilliantly organised by staff and children at Droxford School and the 5 teams that took part really put their all in to each game. The games were fast-flowing with some great attacking play, fancy footwork and accurate ‘tagging’.
The fact that Bishop’s Waltham Junior School made it through to the final for the first time that anyone can remember (eventually losing in an incredibly exciting game to the hosts Droxford) doesn’t seem to have been a disappointment for the children. The highlight for them was a win against local friendly rivals Swanmore in a game with a score line that see-sawed between the two teams before touching down as victory for BWJS.
Our team was resplendent in a new rugby kit kindly donated by FOBS, and the children were a credit to our school.
Our thanks to parents (and grandparents) for their support at pitch side and with transport.
