Students from year 8 participated in the Christmas RFU rugby festival at Barking Rugby Club. Loxford have been working closely with Rugby Football Union England developing students attitude, effort and sportsmanship. During the festival students were able to take part in mini skill sessions with a coach, focusing on safe performance and participation when tackling. Students were then able to apply the key skills into a fun round robin tournament against schools such as Gorsebrook, Eastbrook and Dagenham Park. The PE department would like to say a big well done to all students who participated and to Rugby Football Union England for organising the festival.
Rugby sessions are still available at Loxford for free on Thursdays after school for any student.
