Tonight our Year 7 Rugby team played their first match of the term against Ysgol CaerElen, the tricky conditions limited the flowing rugby and our pupils can be very proud of their efforts against a good team in the freezing weather, we narrowly lost out on this occasion. Well done to all 20 that took part, and it was fantastic to see a number of pupils play their first ever rugby match. Da iawn pawb, a very proud Mr Butland, Mr Edwards & PE Department and whole school. Keep up the good work!
Try scored by Charlie & player of the match for excellent tackling and determination was Zach.
