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.
