Lady Manners School Sports Leaders have been praised for their role in co-ordinating a tag rugby festival for primary school children.
The school offers the opportunity for Upper School students to gain a Level 2 Sports Leader Award. This scheme equips young people with employability skills for life improving motivation, self-esteem, communication, team work and confidence.
The Year 11 students worked hard to create the Rural Derbyshire School Sports Partnership Tag Rugby finals and remained “friendly, polite and professional at all times” throughout the afternoon. The Lady Manners School students were even described by event organisers as “truly amazing”!
Nine primary schools took part in the competition, each playing eight matches on a beautiful, clear – if cold – day. They battled hard for two hours, during which the pace of activity never slowed, resulting in a win for Turnditch C of E Primary School.
Janice Price, manager of Rural Derbyshire School Sport Partnership who coordinates sport for young people across the district, said of our Sports Leaders: “Their confidence and competence with the game and rules of rugby and the professional manner in which they conducted the games were second to none.”
Well done to all of our Sports Leaders for their excellent achievement. We are proud of you!
