National School Sport Week

On Friday 30th June, as part of National School Sports week, neighbouring schools Brookside and St. Mary’s Primary Schools opened their adjoining gates to an afternoon of cricket.  Eighty Year 5 and 6 children took part, including four teams from each school.  The A and B teams played Kwik Cricket and the C and D teams played Continuous Cricket against the other school.  The matches were expertly umpired by teachers and teaching assistants, supported by young student leaders who took on the role of scoring. 

The was school games value teamwork was evident throughout the afternoon with lots of good fielding, batting and bowling displayed by all teams.  Teams also showed good sportsmanship by shaking hands with the opposition at the end of each match.  Honours were even with Brookside winning the Kwik Cricket matches and St. Mary’s triumphing in the Continuous Cricket contests. 

Thank you to all teachers, teaching assistants and children from both schools who contributed to an enjoyable and successful festival.  It is hoped these gates can be opened again on a more regular basis to enable the schools to take part in other sporting fixtures.
