Over the next week Jude Salmon, Active Schools Manager, will be running through the nominees for the Club of the Year Active Schools Awards.
Boroughmuir Rugby Club has promoted rugby very positively in the Firrhill cluster, both in the primaries (Bonaly, Colinton, Pentland, Longstone and Oxgangs) at and at Firrhill High School.
It engages with the school community, not just the schools but the army community too.
Without the club’s work there would be little or no rugby. Several years ago Firrhill High School had success in a national schools trophy and many pupils aspire to repeat this. Firrhill High staff acknowledge this achievement over many others and it is due to the work of the rugby club staff. The club supports its staff and pupils to build relationships and rapport to develop rugby positively.
Alongside Boroughmuir Rugby, The City of Edinburgh Basketball Club and Boroughmuir Blaze (Basketball) have also been nominated for their excellent work within the community.
