Sport plays a huge part in the Olavian community, and whether playing competitively or just for fun, all students are given the opportunity to try something new.
Each year we celebrate the efforts and achievements of students who have represented the school in their sporting endeavours during our Annual Sports Dinner.
Whilst we are currently unable to do so due to the Current Covid-19 social distancing requirements, we would also normally be congratulating our players who's endeavours are recognised and placed in the 'Rugby Team of the Week!’ .
The team is made up of students from all age groups who performed well at the weekend. Players are chosen if they excel within their team or year group, and are nominated by their coaches. Importantly, the ethos of rugby at St. Olave’s is that every pupil, no matter his standard, will have the opportunity to reach his full potential. Each player will get the highest standard of coaching available and irrespective of what team he represents on a Saturday or during the week, he will be given an equal opportunity to achieve his individual goals. It is a testament to the enthusiasm of the boys that we regularly put out 11 teams.
Thank you to all the players who represent the school at weekends as well as the parents for transporting their sons and supporting on the touchline. It is very much appreciated.
Well done to everyone selected for our Rugby Team of the Weeks - we are very proud of you.
