Year 6 were lucky enough to be a part of the Whickham Cricket Club’s Kwik Cricket tournament yesterday. Our three teams played against Y6 teams from all around our area to battle it out for a place in the Gateshead final. Our teams played brilliantly and came second in each of the three groups they were entered in. More importantly, they were brilliant sportspeople, cheering each other on, coaching each other, being supportive and, at the end, congratulating and shaking hands with the opposing teams. The children had their matches umpired by a mixture of experts and absolute beginners (myself included) yet were absolutely respectful and accepting of any decisions made.
Well done Year 6 – another proud day for Parochial!
