Talk about the the trip of a lifetime for one of our Year 9 students – Alex W.
She has been selected as a member of two invitational teams who will represent NZ and attend the Rugby Heritage Cup – World Tournament of School Rugby in Pontlevoy, France later this year. The event is a seven-a-side tournament that will focus on personal growth and leadership through sports and education and has four different tournaments during the event:
• Rugby sevens tournament for girls aged U15
• Rugby sevens tournament for boys aged U15
• Rugby Chef, a cooking challenge with 2 starter dishes to be created to show off the culture and traditions from the team’s country with the help of highly successful
French chefs.
• Rugby short, a short video to be created collectively illustrating one of the 5 values of World Rugby.
Participants will be able to take part regularly in numerous activities in the fields of : ➢ Food and nutrition
➢ Disability
➢ Community and living together
➢ Sustainability
➢ Games in a friendly atmosphere
With a total of 700 participants plus volunteers from Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, France, England, Uruguay, Argentina, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Tonga, Fiji, Japan, Italy, Romania, Georgia, India, Portugal, Kenya and USA – this is the penultimate experience for Alex who loves playing rugby.
