The Cornish Pirates can confirm that schools in the Truro area cluster completed their Six Week Rugby Programme on Wednesday with an exciting and highly competitive Festival.
In total over 200 children from Mithian, Blackwater, Shortlanesend, St Agnes, Chacewater, Archbishop Benson and St Mary’s took part, showcasing their skills after their six weeks of coaching.
Richard Lander School was the venue, where excellent facilities and welcome fine weather played their part in making the Festival a truly memorable day. Cornish Pirates squad member Tom Duncan also assisted the teachers with some last minute tips.
At the end of the Festival, Mr Faint from Mithian School commented:
It was a great festival to finish the six weeks programme, and we now look forward to continue coaching rugby at Mithian!
East Cornwall is the next area for the Rugby Programme to be delivered and it is thrilling that there will be a ‘full house’ of participating schools. It will also benefit and provide excitement for all the youngsters involved.
