P5 Rugby team win the ‘Fair Play’ Award

You might remember our post from September 28th, with some impressive photos taken at Murrayfield on Monday 26th September.

This week we were delighted to recieve the EPSAA Fair Play certificate which was awarded to the SMPS P5 team in recognition of their fantastic behaviour and true sportsmanship!

We also caught up with the team members to hear more about their experience on the day:

“Their were 12 of us from P5 . We have been practicing Rugby in PE and Miss Downie assessed us to figure out which of us are the best palyes! We also had a special meeting and practice before we went off to the turnament. We took a private coach to Murryfield and enjoyed having our packed lunch there when we arrived (Lots of wasps also enjoyed our lunch).

We played on pitch 4 which has an astro turf surface! We scored lots of trys, and though we didnt win the turnament, we had a great experience. We enjoyed playing more competitivly and having a fun and energetic afternoon. We also enjoyed taking pictures with the Edinburgh Rugby players!
