YC Prizegiving
11th July 2017

Fifteen years ago, Ruaridh McConnochie sat in a classroom in Yardley Court and wrote that when he grew up he wanted to be a rugby player. Well, he made it! A Team GB Olympic Silver medallist at Rio 2016 and an England Sevens player, travelling the world, he took time out of his busy schedule to be with his old school for their Sports Day and Prizegiving on Saturday 8th July. A very special event, to congratulate all of the YC boys on their efforts this year and to mark the last year of headship for Ruaridh’s YC Headmaster and U11 rugby coach, John Coakley. 

Thank you to the Swing Band for the super music at prizegiving and to our Year Eight parents for the fantastic house banners at the preceding Sports Days… and a big thank you to Ruaridh for being our Guest and such a fine ambassador for rugby and YC!
