A Great Season of Cricket

The Junior School have had an extremely busy and thoroughly enjoyable term of cricket. The girls have continued to work on the basic fundamental skills of cricket (batting, bowling and fielding) as well as learning about the tactical side of the game, along with developing their general knowledge of the sport.

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have played regular matches against other schools, resulting in some impressive performances. It was great to see the girls transfer everything they have learnt in their lessons into a competitive match play situations and as always, play with a huge smile and with bags of enthusiasm.

The Year 6 team progressed through to the U11 Starburst Regional Finals Day, which is a fantastic achievement. We hosted a six team U11 Invitational Cricket Tournament which allowed us to play one U11 team and one U10 team. The U11 team finished 3rd and the U10 team finished 6th; this was a great experience for all pupils.

As always, Inter-House Cricket was hotly contested, each house putting in some brilliant team performances. Cricket at GHS continues to go from strength to strength.
