Last week the year 5 and 6 students (some from LA19) took place in a cricket carnival against other schools from the area. Played in scorching sunshine, it was an incredible day with displays of cricket which truly blew me away. The boys and girls were each split into two teams, first and second, and competed throughout the day against some superb opposition. At stake was a trip to the WACA (West Australian Cricket Association) cricket ground to take part in a competition against the winners of other, similar carnivals taking place across Perth. Unfortunately, neither of the boys’ teams made it. They both only lost one game all day, though this was enough to see them fall just short of the prize and demonstrates the high quality of cricket being played on the day. The girls, however, fared better with one of their teams remaining unbeaten and securing a much sought after ticket to the WACA. Well done to all the students for an amazing day of fun, sportsmanship, great behaviour and fantastic cricket.
