Rugby

Boys and girls from 2nd up to 6th Class take part in school rugby. For the younger pupils this means training during the week and Saturday mornings. For the older pupils, friendly matches and blitzes are arranged against other AIJS schools.

We are very lucky to have four rugby coaches in total who take the pupils every Tuesday and Thursday during their lunch break for training on our rugby pitches.

Mark Shaw is our Head Rugby Coach, Gamesmaster and PE Teacher. He is extremely passionate about the sport and with the help of the other coaches they impart their skills, knowledge and technique to our budding young players. Each coach always encourages good sportsmanship and team spirit amongst the pupils of Monkstown Park Junior School.

All of our pupils enjoy proudly representing their school in a fun way. The Saturday morning training and matches also involve many of the dads imparting their knowledge to the players. It's not quite clear who enjoys the matches more, the players or the dads!
