Hello,Duncan !

23 June Training Report

Mr. Duncan Gray, our new SIRC coach, is a PE teacher at British School in Tokyo (BST).

No wonder he knows how to get kids’ attention and make the training fun!

His training session together with Brian, BST’s principal, had kids laughing all the way under the great weather last week.

Brian’s last training session is 30th June or 7th July.

We sure will miss him.

To express our gratitude for everything he’s done for SIRC, we’re going to have a farewell party.

Introducing The New York Times Articles on Child Fund Pass It Back (PIB) 

Inspiring article in the New York Times on how ChildFund Pass It Back (PIB), an organization that pairs rugby development and “life skills” education, has helped develop women’s rugby in Laos.

[ The New York Times article is here ]

In fact, our president Koji Tokumasu, as Honorary President of Asia Rugby, and 2 SIRC girls, Bella and Renee, had the privilege of taking part in a Pass It Back event held in Tokyo back in March.

[ PIB video featuring our president is here ]

The Club hopes to support such worthy causes going forward and will look into the possibility of getting involved in more PIB events in the future’.
