Tag Rugby Festival
Through our breakfast club partnership with the Greggs Foundation our year 4 pupils got the opportunity to take part in a weekly coaching session ran by one of the Newcastle Falcons community coaches. This was a fantastic experience for our children who took part in a practical tag rugby session followed by a theory lesson about leading a healthy lifestyle.
As part of the package we were invited to take part in a Tag Rugby festival held at Kingston Park prior to the vital game between the Newcastle Falcons and London Irish. The 3 teams we entered showed great team work, resilience, knowledge and determination. As a result all 3 teams qualified into the semi-finals. Unfortunately team C got knocked out by team B which meant the final was contested by team A and team B from Park End. The final was an outstanding match with both teams expressing exceptional skill and knowledge however team A just managed to come out on top winning the tag rugby festival. All pupils who took part were well behaved and represented Park End Primary School with pride. Mr Storey, Mr Lovatt, Mr Holmes, Mrs Banks and Miss Parry-Jones were very proud well done!
