Northern Beaches Schools Finish the Term in Style
Term two was an extremely busy one for Rugby League in the Manly Sea Eagles district. The final week of the term saw more than one thousand students from the Northern Beaches Community of Catholic Schools converge on three venues in the Warriewood area for two days of Rugby League. Principals Paul McGuire and Mark Bateman were very happy with the spirit of play across Rugby League and Eagle Tag where schools such as St. Kieran’s Manly Vale, St. Rose Collaroy and St. Johns Narraweena took to the field on two cold but sunny days.
St. Mary’s Manly took the honours in the junior Rugby League while Sacred Heart Mona Vale won the final at the senior event. At Eagle Tag, OLGC Forestville, St.Rose, and St.Kierans’s were victors in well contested divisions. Another thirteen fields of non-competitive Tag refereed by secondary students from Mater Maria Warriewood and St. Pauls Manly ensured a successful day in the Manly Sea Eagles district .
Wheeler Heights Public School were victorious in the senior division of the recent government primary Manly All Schools event while the PSSA competition has run all term across four venues. The Jamie Lyon and Peninsula Cups has also also been running in the afternoons with local high schools lining up for their opportunity to play regular Rugby League.
The school community will rest over the holiday period but that is when the Sea Eagles members and the Brookvale Oval NRL holiday clinics expect up to four hundred children in attendance. The Rugby League loving Northern Beaches won’t take a break even if the schools enjoy a well-deserved breather.
