It lasted two hours on a windy afternoon. This didn’t affect either of the primary schools who thoroughly enjoyed the day. The pupils took part in various activities around the Astro which then led into small games. Pupils from Pear Tree Mead and Purford green attended the sessions.
West Ham will be running a club at Passmores academy on Mondays and Tuesday’s.
On Tuesday 9th February, the year 7 boys rugby team entered the West Essex Rugby Tournament. At late notice, due to a flooded pitch, the location of the tournament changed to Westfield rugby club. Due to this a few teams could not make the tournament. Passmores Academy was the only Harlow school who made it.The boys played well against some tough opposition and well drilled teams. A few break away and well worked tries gave Passmores their points.
Overall the boys enjoyed the experience and will take this onto future games.
On a windy day the boys spirits stayed high, which showed a good team cohesion and support for each other.
