Greneway Middle School played host to Icknield Walk, Reed and Studlands Rise first schools and St Marys Primary School in a tag rugby festival for Years 3 and 4.

One hundred and seventy pupils participated in organised coaching sessions where enjoyment, teamwork and skill development through the tag activity, a fast-moving, non-contact invasion game suitable for boys and girls, were the key objectives.

The event, organised by Greneway assistant headteacher Terry Graves and PE teacher Rob Dowler, was then expertly managed and led by Greneway’s Year 8 Young Sports Leaders.

The festival was part of the North East Herts School Sport Partnership, but also the Young Sports Leaders’ programme, a nationally recognised qualification.

Each participating school and every player received a special commemorative participation certificate and these were presented by the Sports Leaders at the end of the day.
