Students from year 7 participated in their first ever RFU rugby festival at Barking Rugby Club. Loxford have been working closely with Rugby Football Union England developing students attitude, participation, effort and gamesmanship. Students were able to apply the key skills they have learnt in lessons into a fun round robin tournament against schools such as Jo Richardson, Barking Abbey, Robert Clack and The Warren. They were then provided with the opportunity to participate in a mix tournament where they could play alongside different schools to build their communication and teamwork skills. The girls absolutely loved the opportunity and have since come away asking when more rugby events are on and asking how they participate outside of school for a club. 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.
