Kingswood's Rugby Festival Raises Funds for Masiphumelele RFC (South Africa)

On Wednesday, over 160 Kingswood pupils and staff took part in the Kingswood Touch Rugby Festival. This inclusive, whole-school, event was adapted this year to meet the COVID-Secure guidelines with pupils playing in their year-group ‘bubbles.’

28th June 2021 — There was a fantastic turnout in the glorious sunshine, and everyone bought into the spirit of the event - with more the experienced players supporting the less experienced players. No scores were kept, but that did not lead to a drop-off in the competitive atmosphere. This was exemplified by the staff game, in which the Headmaster and the staff went flat-out in the blazing heat. A massive thank you must go to Mr Webb and Year 13s Ethan, Harry, and Josh, who led and facilitated the games so effectively.

This festival is a charity event, raising funds for Masiphumelele RFC in South Africa whom Kingswood played on the last Sports Tour. The club uses sport to mentor and support the young people of their community, and their inspiring coach, Frank Charlie, is always grateful for the financial support the Kingswood community offers.
