Anyone for cricket?!

28 March 2019  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Richmond School worked in partnership with Yorkshire Cricket to provide three fun- filled cricket skills festivals for the primary schools in our area.  Over 400 primary pupils took part in a range of cricket-based activities, such as testing the speed of their throw with a speed gun or testing their reactions by diving onto a crash mat whilst catching a ball being fired out of a bowling machine. Twenty sports leaders, from Year 8 and 9, also supported the event by instructing the Year 3 pupils and showing them how to compete.

Twenty sports leaders, from Year 8 and 9, also supported the event by instructing the Year 3 pupils and showing them how to compete.  The event was run in promotion with the AllStars initiative, as local cricket clubs in Richmond, Catterick, Bedale, Middleham and Northallerton gear up to start their AllStars training in the community.  Comments Mark Jobling, AllStars Champion North Yorkshire: ”It was fantastic to see so many participants, helpers and young leaders from all the schools for the Allstar Skills Festivals. The effort, demonstrations, smiles and enthusiasm shown by the Richmond School young leaders really allowed the participants, young and old, pupils and staff to fully engage with every station and skill. It was great to see the young players look up to the leaders and follow their instruction and enthusiasm. There have been lots of really positive comments from staff from all the primary schools about the day and in particular how the young leaders played a pivotal part – this has to be what Allstars and school partnerships is about.”
