Photos: COLIN WILLIAMS An all-action primary school rugby league flag'' tournament at Upper Hutt College on Thursday was the culmination of a success- ful new leadership programme. Planned, managed and deli- vered by year 13 students from Upper Hutt College the six-week programme, which saw the stu- dents working towards NCEA credits in community course lead- ership, featured 12 teams from six local primary schools. Leadership through League'' is an initiative partnership between the schools, Wellington Rugby League and KiwiSport and Sport Wellington. Twenty Upper Hutt College students took part, earning their coaching, leadership and event management credits and achiev- ing the New Zealand Rugby League Mini Mod Coaching Accreditation. After working on the theory and practice with WRL coaches the students spent three weeks in the primary schools where they deli- vered several coaching sessions with their aspirant teams of years 3-4 and 5-6 students, working on a four-coaches-to-30-players ratio, imparting a seven-tier fundamen- tal skills training. For Thursday's tournament the year 13 students (comprising league, union, football and netball players) organised everything with their course mentors step- ping back. The new coaches were also the day's referees, support staff, draw masters, adjudicators . . .thelot. Holly Rausch, who was the tour- nament event manager'', was enthusiastic about the course. It's the first time it's happened and it's been really good. We've had the best of support,'' Holly, a first XI footballer, says. The coaching of the coaches'' at the beginning of the course had been especially good and and had left Holly and the other 19 students well-prepared for their work in the schools. The six primary schools in the action were Birchville, Upper Hutt, Oxford Crescent, St Joseph's, Trentham and Totara Park. Seven other Wellington colleges were involved during the same programme time: Taita, Aotea, Wellington High, Naenae, Rongo- tai, St Pat's (Town) and Porirua.
