Well, to say we were absolutely astounded is an understatement. The girls’ cricket team has achieved one of the most amazing feats I’ve ever known as a primary school teacher. What started as a local competition between several local schools has gone so much further than any of us imagined (although we always hoped). Having won their first tournament, the girls proceeded to the district competition, as mentioned in the previous post. A victory there secured their place at the WA finals at the WACA. So, last Friday the girls picked up their bats and off they went. You could have knocked us over with a feather when the principal announced to everyone that they’d only gone and won the whole thing. This means they’re officially the best girls’ primary school cricket team in Western Australia! The girls now have their biggest date ever – the Australian finals at the famous MCG in Melbourne where they’ll take on the other states. Amazing! Well done, girls.
