Hygiene, Healthy Eating & Activity in Primary Schools (HHEAPS)

In 2007 Scottish Rugby entered into partnership with the Food Standards Agency (Scotland) to deliver a food safety and healthy eating programme in tandem with rugby activities to thousands of primary school pupils across Scotland. They firmly believe that sport can play a powerful role in providing the catalyst to improving the quality of life for young people in communities across Scotland, in particular to improving their health & wellbeing.

Gala Rugby have fully supported this project and are pleased that
Both St Peters Primary School and the Burgh Primary School recently completed the project. Ian G Millar the Gala Rugby Youth Development Officer presented both schools with some rugby equipment.

We are pleased to say that Gala rugby will again deliver the programme next year to two more schools.

Edinburgh Rugby at Netherdale

EDINBURGH RUGBY CLUB & SCHOOL COACHES’ CLINICS Statement from E.R.
Edinburgh Rugby are coming to the Borders during the pre-season to show you, what we’re about and listen to what you have to say. We’re heading to Netherdale Gala RFC (6 August) with our coaches for an evening of hands-on coaching and hands-up questions.
Head coach Alan Solomons said: “It's important that there’s a good relationship between the pro teams and the clubs in our region”. “Events like this give us an opportunity to reach out to the clubs in our area and lend a hand of support.”

The evening will kick off with a specialist interactive session where club coaches can see how the E.R.coaching team operates, followed by an open discussion and time for questions to Alan, assistant coaches Omar Mouneimne and Stevie Scott plus M.D. David Davies. This will then be followed by a "Are You Rugby Ready" session for all coaches.

We look forward to seeing you on our travels.
