St Attracta’s National School in Meadowbrook recently finished their first six-week exposure to the new ‘Play Rugby’ programme…

Fifth class teacher Sue MacDonagh took on the task of introducing the programme to her class of both boys and girls. In the first week CCRO Robert McAlinden from DLSP introduced the class to the programme and also ran a sample session for the teacher.

He then returned in the sixth week to see how the class had got on, he was also on hand during the six weeks if there was any difficulties. There was a great improvement in the student’s skills and game sense in that period and all credit must go to Sue for her hard work and excellent coaching Skills.
