Bannockburn Rfc Rugby Festival

Bannockburn RFC hosted a primary school festival on the 7th October. This was on the back of a 4 week block of rugby taster sessions that the Bannockburn RFC SVQ’s coaches lead in partnership with Active School Coordinator - Fraser Crawford.

The scchools that attended the festival were,

Bannockburn Primary
Braehead Primary
St Mary’s Primary
East Plean Primary
Cowie Primary
St Margaret’s Primary

There were a total of 197 children that took part in 6 different rugby stations that tested the skills they learned during the taster sessions held within their schools.

Mark Findlay Active Stirling Rugby Development Officer would like to give a massive thank you Jim Jaffray, Jim Norval and Allan Currie Bannockburn RFC coaches for giving up their time to support this event.

This was a great day for the children and it was great to see so many children taking part in rugby activities. It also allowed them to meet coaches from their local rugby club and further strengthen the links between Bannockburn RFC and the local schools.
