Our cricket team pictured above – Tristan, Sayan, Finn, Gryffin, Ibrahim, Martin and Thomas
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of once again attending a cricket tournament with P4, P5, P6 and M1 students at Kennedy House. Over the last 3 years of supporting cricket at ISMAC the standard of play has significantly improved in all schools so it was a highly competitive tournament.
Unfortunately, due to illness, we were one player short so we borrowed a player from the opposition for each match. All of these students happily fielded for us however there was a standout performance from our ‘borrowed’ Jaffrey House player, called Akshat, in our final match. This student fielded with a commitment worthy of the World Cup and even gave bowling advice to Ibrahim which resulted in a wicket!
It was wonderful to witness such sporting behaviour from all teams in the tournament and ISMAC achieved 3rd place out of 6 teams.
A big thanks to Mr. Mick for supporting cricket development at ISMAC through his Wednesday afternoon Cricket CCA and our parents for providing such lively support and additional coaching.
