Concussion Awareness at Meadow Bridge P.S -

'Recognise and Remove'

At our Meadow Bridge P.S rugby sessions, we want to inform all of our players of the risks of concussion in a contact sport.

All of our players have been handed out the publication from the Department of Education which educates us about how to recognise the symptoms of concussion and remove that player from the action. Thankfully this is something that we are seeing a lot more of on T.V as we watch rugby matches!

We want all of our players to be safe and enjoy the game, please take time to read the leaflet for yourself. Follow the hyperlink below for all of the necessary details:
