Mr Hetherington and Mr Black took a group of students to participate in the year 8 Rugby League 9 aside festival hosted by Workington Town. Two teams made up of 19 players represented the school including four year 7 students who were willing to step up and play against players older than them.
It was a frosty night at Derwent Park but the action on the field was fierce, both teams played fantastically with the B Team beating all other teams which included Workington Academy, Nelson Tomlinson, Netherhall and their own A Team (a game which was extremely competitive but played in high spirits). The A Team which included our four year 7’s drew with Netherhall, beat Workington Academy and lost to Nelson Tomlinson and our B Team – a fantastic effort that all players should be proud of.
The main thing Mr Hetherington and Mr Black were proud of was the students’ impeccable behaviour from beginning to end, they will all be receiving special praise for the way they represented the school.
