3 St Mary’s Year 10 students attended Kingston Park today to take part in the first module of the RFU Rugby Ambassador’s course. The course is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of students to enable them to become coaches and referees both inside and outside of the school in the future and has been previously been an incredible support for the growing rugby clubs in school. Ben Jubb, Jack Pilling and Alex Histed were chosen for this year’s course thanks to their outstanding commitment to rugby in school. The first module was a Level 1 Rugby Refereeing course held at Kingston Park. The students worked hard in workshops all morning to improve their knowledge and confidence, before using their skills to referee the Year 7 & 8 Festival taking place at Kingston Park in the afternoon. The boys all received excellent feedback for their refereeing and were complemented by other members of staff on their confidence and decision making. Upcoming modules will cover Level 1 Coaching, Scrum Factory and Rugby Ready and will enable the students to lead coaching for Year 7 & 8 students in the future, something which will be a great help as rugby club continues to grow!
