South Powys Primary School Festival a resounding success for Community Foundation

Community | 13th July 2022

The Cardiff Rugby South Powys Primary Festival was a resounding success earlier this month, with more than 250 local children taking part.

A total of 23 teams were in attendance as the Community Foundation celebrated the very best that South Powys rugby has to offer.

With pupils ranging from Year Three to Year Six, it is the latest in a long line of community festivals held for primary schools within the region.

The festival was held on the state-of-the-art campus at Christ College, Brecon, with St Nicholas House, Llanfaes Primary, Ysgol y Bannau, Priory Church in Wales Primary, Mount Street Primary and Caradoc Primary all taking part.

Community officer, Daniel Parry, said: “It was great to see so many children coming along, developing their rugby skills but most importantly enjoying the day. That’s exactly what we want to see from these festivals.

“We’ve seen similar festivals held at places like Tonyrefail, Crickhowell and Cardiff Arms Park in recent months, and the opportunity to engage with children in every corner of the region is a hugely important aspect of our work within the Foundation.

“The facilities at Christ College were perfect to hold such an event, and we’d like to thank them for their support throughout the year. 

“We’d also like to thank those taking part in the festival because it’s really fulfilling to see so many active children enjoying rugby. We had a healthy mix of boys and girls taking part and hopefully these are the first steps in their own rugby careers.”
