A beautiful, sunny Wednesday morning saw the students from St Molaga's fifth classes hit the rugby pitch in an inter-class blitz to culminate their rugby programme.

More than 150 students showed off their skills on the pitch and enjoyed a fun morning of rugby.

The games were competitive but the fun aspect was evident. The games were played with great sportsmanship, with a handshake after every game and cheers from beginning to end.

The students had been working with Balbriggan community rugby officer Connor Burke for six weeks, participating in fun games designed to promote enjoyment while enhancing their skills with the rugby ball.

The six-week Tag rugby programme also promotes fundamental movement skills as well as a keen emphasis on teamwork and support.

"It was very pleasing to see all the students getting involved and enjoying themselves in this fun day of rugby," said a teacher.

If you are interested in getting involved in the six-week Tag programme or would like more information on it please contact Connor Burke on 0872192633 or via email balbrigganccro@leinsterrugby.ie
