School Games Primary Tag Rugby Festival
On Thursday a team of twelve children (girls and boys) from Years 5 and 6 took part in the first competitive sport event of the year. The tag rugby festival was held at Old Halesonians Rugby Club and included sixteen teams organised into four groups. St. Joseph's played against the three other teams in their group and won 5 -2, 5 - 0 and 5 -1 respectively. As winners of the group they automatically qualified for the next stage of this competition which will take place in March 2018. The team then played against Caslon School in the semi final and through excellent defensive team-work managed to win 3 -1. The final of the festival yesterday was a closely contested game with both sides displaying excellent support play and defensive skills. Unfortunately, a couple of break-away scores was enough to highlight the difference between the two teams, St. Joseph's losing 4 - 2. This is the first time in a number of years in which a team has progressed to the next round of this competition. Congratulations and well done to our competitors.
