As some of you may know, last term we started a new partnership called Rugby for All.
Created and ran by Ian Kenny (Academy Director for Alleynian Junior Rugby), the sessions were incredibly successful with the children.
Southwark Council came to visit during one of the sessions and were so impressed with what they saw that they decided to roll out the initiative in other schools in the borough as part of their ‘Tackling Inactivity’ strategy. They have asked our permission to video one of the sessions so that they can use it to train their managers as part of the implementation programme.
We are of course, delighted to be used as a benchmark for other local schools. It is great news for us and even better news for the children, who are clearly benefiting from a fantastic programme.
We are currently getting permission from parents regarding the filming, so in the meantime, if you want to find out more about the sessions, click here or visit our Gallery to see the fun for yourself!
