Kidlington Partnership Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby Festival

On a sunny Thursday 2nd November the Kidlington primary partnership took part in their year 5 & 6 tag rugby festival. Nearly 110 students attended from across 4 primary schools Dr South’s, West Kidlington, North Kidlington & Edward Feild.  The event was supported by both Gosford All Black’s Rugby Club & The Rugby Football Union. With a coach called James in attendance with free water bottles and flyers for all of the pupils who took part.

The event focused on the school games value of respect and this was clearly on show from all of the teams and every individual pupil who took part.  Handshakes were completed at the end of each game and the pupils were excellent at thanking the young leaders for their help during and after the event. The standard of rugby played was very high and all of the games were keenly contested! The games were superbly refereed by Gosford Hill sports leaders with the remaining leaders each supporting a team on the day. The contribution of all of the leaders was crucial to the success of the event!
