With the 2015 Rugby World Cup still in full swing, six schools from across the Dawlish Learning Partnership joined together for a Tag Rugby Festival. Tag Rugby is a safe, fun and exciting form of non-contact rugby as there are no scrums, line-outs or tackling allowed.
On a chilly Wednesday afternoon, Year 5 children from Exminster, Kenton, Cockwood, Starcross & Westcliff Primary Schools along with Gatehouse ACE Academy met at the Sandy Lane Astro pitches in Dawlish to play a number of matches. The games were kindly refereed by sports leaders from Dawlish Community College.
As it was a fun festival event, there was no overall winning team but medals were awarded to players who showed great spirit, enthusiasm and sportsmanship throughout the afternoon and everyone went away with a certificate for taking part and representing their school. Exminster did extremely well winning 3 of their games and drawing the other 2. Thanks to all the staff and parents who made this event possible. A great time was had by all.
