South West U10 and U11 Rugby Festival
Wednesday the 28 of November saw the return of Truro School Prep’s annual rugby festival. The festival has been growing steadily over the past three years and was again well attended. Exeter School, Exeter Cathedral School, St Hilary and Mount Kelly joined five teams from Truro School Prep in an action packed day. The tournament was well officiated with Truro School Senior’s pupils being used as referees.
The standard of rugby played during the afternoon was high with all schools entering into the spirit of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, sportsmanship and discipline. As with all fixtures at this age group, there were no scores for the matches and therefore no overall winner. Prizes were instead given for those children thought to be embodying the RFU’s core values the most throughout the festival. The festival was a fantastic opportunity for all Truro School Prep’s Year 5 and 6 children to represent the school in competitive sport, many of whom did so for the first time.
