TOUCH RUGBY / RUGBY
Year 1 - 8 students are eligible to play touch during Terms 1 and 4. It is a great sport for all ages. Teachers involved in organising teams will call for interested students again at the beginning of Term 1 as well as at the very end of Term 3 / beginning of Term 4. We have always been well-supported by parental help either through coaching or managing teams in this sport. If you are ever interested in helping out with any of our touch teams, please contact Miss Trudie Curtis (Room 21).
Te Rapa Junior Rugby Club provides competition and opportunity for all age groups within our school. The Te Rapa Club is based at St Andrews Park. Many students are also involved with other local rugby clubs eg. Eastern Suburbs, Hamilton Old Boys and Marist.
The school participates in a variety of rugby competitions and invitations throughout the year, where time allows within our busy school timetable. Te Rapa Primary provides rugby jerseys in our school’s colours for these inter school fixtures.
Te Rapa Primary School students also feature in representative sides at Gould Cup, Bower Cup, Roller Mills and Gwynne Shield levels.
Students interested in inter-school rugby should see Miss Curtis in Room 21.
