On Friday the 18th of October, Dream Cricket hosted students participating from both the Lutheran School and Yorke’s Central School. There was a total of 29 students from both – Lutheran school & Central Yorke School, with 6 Rotarians from Maitland Rotary club and 5 from Edwardstown. There were 2 physical Education teachers also available. Each school provided several year 9 students as helpers, and I believe, it was of great value to them as well.

It was a great day with all the students enjoying themselves. After the day, each attendee was given a medal for their participation. Feedback from the schools tells us that this was most popular as the kids liked the concept of Sticky- Wicky game & Sticky – wicky wicket pop-ups.

We were extremely pleased when the Maitland Rotary Club supported us in coordinating this special event, thanks to Mr Huges in particular as he was the link between the school and us. Mr Hugh from Ma itland Rotary club had arranged for the local newspaper to attend. Also, there was a local man to represent Variety SA (the Grant sponsor). I have briefly explained and have given copies of the training manual and information flyers to the school and Rotarians present. Later, the Maitland (SA) Rotary club members indicated that they would continue to operate Dream Cricket on the Peninsula with a possible thought of a special need school at Monta Bay (Northern Yorke Peninsula South Australia) on their chart. As a result of this undertaking, we were able to leave the two cricket kits which, The Variety Club (SA) financed, in their care for future use.

The club of Edwards town sincerely thanks everyone involved with organising the evening, with special thanks to Geoff Tancred for delivering the kits before the event. We appreciate and acknowledge that without volunteer support these children would not have had the full enjoyment of the day.
