WHILE most children were still enjoying their summer holidays a group of pupils from Cliff Park High School were working hard in the last week of the holidays to improve their rugby skills.

As part of the Schools Sports College status 20 pupils from Year 9 and 10 took part in a very successful Summer Camp at Broadland-Great Yarmouth Rugby Club.

The camp was one of a number of similar activity weeks funded by the University of the First Age and it aimed to develop pupils' rugby and leadership skills.

The week consisted of a number of specialised rugby sessions taken by coaches Ben Player, Ryan Callaby, Andy Hargreave and Nick Greenhall. Other pupils took part in workshops on fitness, nutrition, and teamwork.
