High school rugby teams from across the Pontiac and beyond gathered at the Mansfield et Pontefract high school on Saturday, for a full day of games.
Seeing six teams take part, École secondaire Sieur-de-Coulonge (ESSC) played host to the games, while also raising money for one of the popular extracurricular activities at the school.
ESSC teacher Gabie Paré said that the money raised through an on-site barbeque and snack shack will go towards supporting their group, Famille Animalis.
This group sees and cares for a variety of school pets, from rats and ferrets to rabbits and lizards. Paré said that while a science teacher at the school oversees the program, students clean, feed, and document the day-to-day of the animals.
