Hello Mums & Dads

 P5 Strathendrick festival 2016



Summer Tag Rugby starts 6 May at 1800-1915 followed by BBQ and beers !!!!


Strathendrick – A Great Finish for the Season!

Well done to all those who travelled to Strathendrick last Sunday.

Our mighty P3 team led by Nick were joint winners of their age group with GHK!!

The P4 & P5 teams played some fantastic rugby promoting team work and positivity throughout the tournament. I witnessed 4 of P5 players making a try saving tackle on a rather large opposition player which was inspiring to see!!

The P6 & P7 teams were semi-finalists, where both missed out on the final after playing superbly.

Again a big thank you to all involved last Sunday at Strathendrick it was great day of rugby.  On that note our season rugby season draws to a close but the summer rugby season begins!!


Summer Tag Rugby

We will start our Summer Tag Rugby series off on Friday 6 May 16 at 1800hrs.  The aim is to get everyone playing together: from the Tigers, 1st XV, Veterans as well as Mums and Dads!

The format will enable everyone to play together and have fun as well as having a social BBQ.  For the food, it will be a case of bring your own meat (or whatever you want to BBQ) as well as something for a salad, which we can all share.

On the first Friday, we will also hand out any of the remaining awards for those who have not received them yet!!!



We propose to drop our emails to you to just one every fortnight to keep you up to date with our summer programme and to remind you of our Tag Rugby series.
