Year 7 trip to Kent County Cricket Club
Costa Rica and St Lucia classes visited Kent County Cricket Club at the St Lawrence Ground on Monday 13th June 2022. Read all about their day.
On Monday 13th June, the pupils in Costa Rica and St Lucia went to the St Lawrence Cricket Ground to watch Kent vs Gloucestershire in the County Championship.
For many of the children this was their first experience of watching elite level sport.
The highlights of the day were:
- Playing cricket on the outfield;
- Meeting the match sponsors, Countrystyle Recyling, operating their new electric sweeper and finding out how a bin lorry worked;
- Participating in an inclusive sports workshop;
- Meeting some of the players and getting some of their autographs.
On the bus back to school there were many happy (and in some cases sleepy) children, who thoroughly enjoyed their day at the cricket!
