Pupils in Clydebank had a ball last week when they took part in the P6 Rugby Festival organised by Active Schools.

In total, 13 primaries sent teams to the event, which was part of the West Dunbartonshire School Games.

The schools were split into two groups and the winning team from each group, along with the best runner-up, qualified for the finals of the West Dunbartonshire Schools Games.

The qualifying schools were St Mary’s and Our Lady of Loretto, who were joint first, and Linnvale, who were the best runners-up.

The finals take place on Tuesday, March 26, at the Clydebank Community Sports Hub from 6pm to 8pm and will see the qualifying schools from Clydebank battle it out with the qualifying teams from Dumbarton and the Vale.

Louise Morrison, Active Schools coordinator, told the Post: “It was a fantastic morning and all the pupils who took part had a great time.

“A special thanks to the Clydebank Community Sports Hub for allowing us to host the festival at the venue.

“It’s a fantastic new facility and hopefully we can host many more festivals there in the future.”

On the day, students from West College Scotland Sports Coaching Course helped to referee proceedings, while pupils on the Sports Leaders course at St Peter the Apostle High School helped to keep score.

Louise added: “It’s great to have the support from the college and the high school and offers great opportunities for their students to see the opportunities available for young people in sport within their community.”
