Tag Rugby Festival

Tag Rugby Festival


The sun decided to make an appearance just in time for our trip to Budmouth this afternoon. Ten Year 6 pupils were chosen to participate in a Tag Rugby Festival led by Year 7’s.

To begin with, children played a variety of games, skills and drills in order to develop their ability to:


  1. Run with the ball

  2. Pass the ball using the correct technique

  3. Grab tags in order to stop the opposition

  4. pass backwards to their teammates

  5. Score a try

  6. Work together as a team


After learning about the game, the children then entered a friendly competition against some of the other schools who also attended. Here are the results.

Southill 3 – 3 St Johns

Southill 1 – 2 St Augustine’s

Southill 5 – 0 Conifers


I must say, the children represented Southill School brilliantly. It was great seeing them enjoy themselves and be out in the sunshine, especially after a difficult week of tricky tests last week. Well done, TEAM SOUTHILL!

A huge thank you to Mr. Matthews, Mr. Bugler, Mr. Thorne and Mr. Mason for kindly helping to transport the children over to Budmouth.

Mr. Prior
