Students within practical lessons are nearing the end of their first activity block of this year. Pupils study a sport…
Wickersley PE department has been awarded the “Spirit” award by Dave Hunter and Jonathan Rickerby at Yorkshire Rugby for their work in promoting Girls Rugby this year in both PE lessons and at the school extracurricular club. All Year 7 pupils have experienced a six-week block of work in PE lessons this year and Year 8 girls have also been offered the choice of Rugby in their two option blocks. All of which have embraced the opportunity to learn a new sport.
As a result of the department’s work with development officers and coaches this year, many girls from our school have then gone on to attend evening training sessions at Rotherham Rugby Club and Dinnington Rugby Club where they get to progress their skills and play regular competitive matches at the weekend.
We wish our girl’s lots of luck in progressing in the sport!
