Boys and girls in cricket teams from local primary schools in Year 5 took part in a coaching session and fun tournament hosted by Christ’s Hospital’s Director of Sport and cricket coaches on Friday 18 May.
The sun shone throughout the afternoon and the School’s estates team ensured that the cricket pitches were perfect for the children to test and improve their batting, bowling and fielding skills. The fun tournament that followed was competitive and eventually won by the team from Southwater Junior Academy.
Afterwards, the children thoroughly deserved their sports’ tea of sausages and chips in Christ’s Hospital’s magnificent Dining Hall. The afternoon ended with certificates being presented to all who took part.
This is one of the many events organised by Christ’s Hospital for primary schools as part of its outreach programme.Back to list
