Congratulations to Rwandan School team, ISETAR who participated in the Federation of East Africa Secondary Schools Championship (FEASSA) competed in Bujumbura, Burundi from 26/08/2012-01/09/2012. ISETAR had been selected to participate after winning the tournament organised in Rwanda as part of the Federation of Schools and Sports Association Inter-schools Games which were in June 2012. The FEASSA Championship included three Kenyan school teams (Kakamega, Mangu and Maseno) four Ugandan teams (Hana-who won in 2011, Namiryango, Kisubi and Ntare) and two teams from Burundi (LTP and Lycee Kayanza) The games went well For ISETAR who won games against Hana (6-3) and Ntare (26-6), but unfortunately lost to Kakamega (40-9) and LTP with a narrow score of 7-0. This final lost squandered their chance to make the semi-finals. Kakamega won the tournament in a dominant game against Hana which they won 39-0. Well done to FoRR Programme Manager, Kamanda who was invited to participate in this international school fixture as a referee. ISETAR is a school in Kamonyi, Rwanda who were first introduced to rugby by Kamanda who worked with their sports teacher to keep the game going with ongoing intermittent support from Kamanda and Rugby coach, Philip Gakarage.
