Today we hosted our annual Festival of Rugby, which is an outreach event for local schools. The weather was thankfully in our favour as four schools joined us (Balfour Junior School, Hilltop Primary Academy, Cliffe Woods Primary School and Brompton Westbrook Primary School) for a day full of rugby.
King’s School Rochester Sports staff were fantastic at providing training opportunities in the morning, followed by matches against each other in the afternoon. Some of the children hadn’t had much experience with rugby prior to the event but wanted to follow up with a local club having discovered the joy from today’s session.
We look forward to hosting the event again next year and it gave us pure joy to see the smiles on their faces as they left us, suitably covered in mud.
