Student Council Tip Rugby Blitz
On 28th April last the Student Council ran a very successful Tip Rugby Blitz in conjunction with Bantry Bay RFC. There were smiles all round as over 300 C.P.B. students got involved. As well as playing, students acted as referees and score keepers. The aim of the event was to enhance the existing good atmosphere in the school and to give students a fun day to remember. While doing that the Student Council also carried out some charity work as all funds raised will be handed over to the Guide Dogs’ Association of Ireland when they visit the school on 23rd May.
Damien Hicks, Club Community Rugby Officer, was an enormous help to the Student Council in organising teams and meeting them on a number of occasions prior to the event to discuss rules and the smooth running of the day. On the day he was joined by fellow coaches, Eugene McCarthy and Ray Gagsden who gave all students and especially the organising students, great responsibility and encouragement.
Many thanks to everyone involved.
