Early in May, children from The Bishops’ C of E Learning Academy, Treverbyn Academy, Bishop Bronescombe C of E, Gorran School, Roche Community Primary and Pondhu School all had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills with an exciting and highly competitive Festival.
The event followed a long delay of playing the Festival due to the atrocious weather experienced over the Spring term, so a special mention to all the teachers involved for being so understanding.
Poltair School was the venue where the open pitch played its part in the free-flowing rugby displayed. Cornish Pirates’ Community Engagement Manager, Sam Teasdale, commented:
“Firstly, thanks to everyone at Mid Cornwall Sports Network for their assistance with the Festival and being so flexible with the weather! Secondly, to all the children involved today, it was definitely worth the wait. Some great rugby on display!”
Tom Channon was the player in attendance and deservedly later that evening received the ‘Community Player of The Year’ award.
