Student Agency at BBPS - Rugby Clinics – Congratulations to Ati, Eve, Sophia, Iona and Emma who planned, organised and facilitated a rugby clinic for 1W last week.
Iona and Sophia: We liked teaching 1W rugby because it was fun to see them learn how to play and help them learn drills so they know in the future.
Ati and Eve: It was very fun getting to teach the Grade 1’s. It was interesting to see their skills and they listened almost as much as they do the teachers. Most of them had never played before. We mostly enjoyed teaching our little brother and sister. It was cool to run something ourselves.
Feedback from their Grade 1 students:
Tyler “I like rugby because it is fun. I now want to play it”
Tommy “I liked passing rugby squirt and playing games”
Madi “I liked rugby squirt because we had to race another person”
Daisy “The instructions made the rules simple”
