Rugby Ready with the Deadly 7s

This term, students in Year 2/3, 4/5 and 5/6 will have exciting opportunity to participate in the Deadly 7s program, a new national program run by The Australian Rugby Union.

Over the next five weeks, students will participate in a combination of classroom-based theory lessons and practical skill lessons, culminating in a carnival at the end of the program. Students loved their first week of lessons and were excited to get involved with the games and drills organised the expert coaches on Wednesday afternoon. Through the the program, students learn about the importance of attending school and attaining a good quality education, living a healthy lifestyle, connecting to culture and strategies for developing positive relationships in your life.
