Sport studies: the rugby section on track at Saint-Pierre college in Saint-Brieuc – Saint-Brieuc

6th and 5th grade students from Saint-Pierre college will be able to combine studies and rugby, in Saint-Brieuc, from the start of the school year in September. The project had been on the table for several weeks. He reached a milestone this Thursday, January 13. A desire shared by David Hersin, the director of the college-high school, and the French Rugby Federation, represented by the president of the departmental committee Philippe Lasserre, when signing an agreement which also involves the Rugby-club of Saint-Brieuc (RCSB ) and its president Ronan Lebreton.

Concretely, the students of the sports section would have access, in addition to their hours of PE, to two sessions of 1h30 per week, led by qualified educators and supervised by Nicholas Ford, sports coordinator within the RCSB. The schedules would also be arranged, to respect school and sports rhythms. And the offer is aimed at both girls and boys. In clubs, rugby is also mixed until the age of 14.

A first in the Briochin basin

« The proposal was made to me by a member of staff, also volunteering within the Briochin club », explains David Hersin, who has already worked to develop the practice of sport within his previous establishment, in Plérin. « It’s a great opportunity », 18 months before the World Cup in France.

The ball is now in the rectorate’s court, which will have to give its approval to the establishment of the section. « The file is complete and solid », believe the actors of this « first » in the Saint-Brieuc basin. And in case of academic refusal? « It would become an option offered to students, » says David Hersin.
