Inverteign emerge triumphant in the year 3/4 Tag Rugby tournament

The year 3/4 Tag Rugby tournament at Teignmouth Community College was a very closely contested competition.  The standard of Rugby was very high with many of the players relishing the opportunity to not only represent their school but to also play against their team mates from Teignmouth Rugby Club. 


In pool A Inverteign played Shaldon A in the opening match and managed to edge the game with a 5-3 victory, before beating Trinity and Bishopsteignton B to reach the final.  Shaldon won the remainder of their games including a close 3rd and 4th place play off game against Bishopsteignton A to clinch 3rd place.

In Pool B Hazeldown won both their games by one try against Shaldon B and Bishopsteignton A to reach the final. 


In the final Inverteign got off to a very strong start and player of the tournament Brad Breslan was central to this with his strong running with the ball.  At the final whistle Inverteign celebrated victory and both of the finalists now go on to represent the Teignmouth Learning Community in the Partnership finals.


Trinity finish unbeaten to claim the year 5/6 Tag Rugby tournament 

The year 5/6 Tag Rugby Tournament began with 9 teams from all 7 of the Teignmouth Learning Partnership schools playing in 3 pools.  The Rugby played was of a high standard and one of the most entertaining games of the evening was between OLSP and Stokenteignhead with end to end rugby and some nifty footwork thrown in by players from both teams.

In Pool A Trinity won all of their games including a narrow victory against the team who finished 4th overall Shaldon A.  In Pool B Bishopsteignton A topped their group and their B team followed suit by winning Pool C.


All three teams then played in a round robin for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  Trinity beat Bishopsteignton B in the first game, the 2 teams from Bishopsteignton drew in the second game and it all came down to the final game.  Bishopsteignton A therefore had to beat Trinity in the final game and with both teams unbeaten it was no surprise when the game finished a draw leaving Trinity to lift the Trophy. 


Teignmouth Schools Cycle to Success


The Tour of Britain is an international cycle race, taking

place over eight stages and involving 16 teams of six riders.  The South West stages took place on the 14th and 15th of September 2010.


Stage 4 finished in Teignmouth on the promenade.  As part of this event primary schools were invited to take part in an ‘Italian Pursuit’ along the promenade.  The team of young riders were given coaching from British Cycling prior to the event. 


Bishopsteignton in the blue bibs won the event and their team consisted of; J Doxey, J Gibbon, E Pitt, J Little and A Addiscott. 


Bishopsteigntons first ride was against a primary school from Torquay.  This race was hotly contested with both teams showing excellent speed and cornering skills.  The pursuit was to-and-fro from start to finish with Bishopsteignton emerging victorious and beating the opposition by a mere 2 seconds.


The final was against a strong team from Sacred Hearts in Torquay.  Again this pursuit race was fiercely contested right from the off.  It was not until it was a one-to-one pursuit on the final lap that the difference could be seen between the two opposing riders

even then the race was only won by half a bike length!


The whole team had a fantastic time with Jack summing up the day “Our team work and determination paid off.  It was a great opportunity that was massively enjoyed by our team, family and supporters”.


The team from Inverteign in the green bibs finished in third place and their team consisted of; Alex Mehera, Marika Jones, Beth James and Ben Lyons. (order left to right receiving medals in the photo)


Beth was described by the commentator as the "pocket rocket" and thought she may have a future in the sport!!!
