Tag test for teachers

Sacred Heart NS in Blanchardstown has completed a six-week tag rugby pilot programme in which 28 teachers from the school received coaching. The programme was co-ordinated by Ciaran Lyons and delivered by Leinster Rugby/Fingal County Council's community rugby officer, Christian Stemmet.

The programme consisted of training sessions involving both teachers and pupils in a fun and safe rugby environment. The pilot programme was a resounding success as proved by the teacher interest.

The school, on completion of the programme, also received a resource pack to continue upon the foundation now set. The resource pack was co-funded by Leinster Rugby and Fingal County Council.
