Canberra Grammar school—cricket

MR HANSON (Molonglo) (6.43): I rise tonight to talk about the Canberra Grammar school cricket presentation night on Thursday, 22 March that occurred at the Canberra Grammar school.

Cricket plays a very important part at Canberra Grammar, as do many other sports, as you would know, Mr Speaker. It was a great night to see all the parents, the boys and the coaches there in the one place to celebrate a great year of cricket at Canberra Grammar.

The welcome was provided by Declan Norrie, who is the captain of cricket, and the special guest who spoke was Chris Cairns, who is involved heavily with the Canberra Grammar cricket program. He spoke of the value of cricket in teaching life’s lessons. Also acknowledged on the night was the significant role played by many of the teachers, the coaches and the parents who spend many extra hours in supporting their young boys to play the game of cricket.

The team reports and awards were made, and from the primary school we heard from David Messina, who is the master in charge of cricket, and from the senior school we heard from Hugh Phillips, who is the vice captain of cricket.
