A large number of 186 students took part in the Play Rugby programme St Patrick’s NS Diswellstown…

Three classes from senior infants and 3 classes from 5th class partook in a four week fun filled programme delivered by Leinster and Fingal County Community Rugby Officer, Christian Stemmet.

For the younger age group the emphasis was on fun game activities with basic movement skills and teamwork at the centre of the sessions. For the older group of students the focus was on ball skills, agility, general movement skills and tag rugby.

St Patricks NS will be attending a local area blitz in the coming weeks at Westmanstown Sportgrounds.

Emer Soulsby said: “All the children enjoyed the fun filled sessions and look forward to showing their new skills at the blitz.”
