Kingspan Mini Rugby Festival 2023

Today the Rugby Squad travelled up to Ulster's home of rugby, the Kingspan Stadium, to compete in the Kingspan Mini Rugby Festival. The sun was blazing, and the boys all had fun and played brilliantly. This was the first time they have got to play in their new kits which look fantastic. The team won their three matches with great attacking rugby and strong defense! The boys also had an opportunity to run out onto the pitch from the players entrance and have a tour of the Ulster Changing Room.


Thank you to all those parents who not only taxied us to and from the Stadium, but for their continued support. It was great to hear them cheering from the stands.

West Down Rugby Qualifier


On Thursday 30 March a squad of twelve travelled to Banbridge R.F.C. to represent the school in the West Down Rugby Qualifier. The team came up against Friend's Prep, Dromore Central PS, Meadowbridge PS and Wallace Prep and played some fantastic rugby. We were delighted to have some boys who have never played in a rugby match represent us today and be supported and encouraged by their team mates. A great start to our rugby season.



Rugby vs Meadow Bridge PS and Spa PS

On Thursday 20th April, our P6 and 7 rugby boys played against Spa Primary School and Meadow Bridge Primary School. With sun was shining, the boys played some fast-flowing rugby. It was great to have some players who have never played competitive rugby before playing for our Waringstown PS Rugby Team. Many thanks to the parents who helped with transport to and from Meadow Bridge PS.

125 Mini Rugby Festival at Campbell College

Last Friday our rugby team travelled to Campbell College for their 2019 Mini Rugby Festival.

The boys played Carrickmannon PS in their first game and came away victors scoring a few nice tries. Their next opponent was Moneyrea PS, a bigger team who were very strong. Our team played well together and grew into the game but unfortunately were defeated. The last game was against Friend's Prep, and at this point the boys were really starting to gel and put in a perfect performance to win the game.

The team this year was a mixture of experienced rugby boys and boys who have never played rugby before. We were delighted to see how well they played together and worked on creating a true team spirit.

A huge thankyou must be given to the Rev Hawthorne who helped with the after schools rugby and to prepare the team for this tournament. Thanks also go to the parents who came along to cheer the boys on and who provided lifts.

We also want to thank Campbell College for their hospitality, providing burgers, drinks and a T-shirt to all players.

Well done to all involved.
