Cricket success!

What a brilliant achievement from Team Brook this week, coming 2nd out of twelve teams in a rapid fire cricket competition!  Mrs Sharp accompanied the team, and provided the following report:

 

“I was so impressed with how they pulled together as a team, and really showed that hard work and determination pays off.  Each and every one them gave it their all, and I couldn’t be prouder.  To stand there cheering them on throughout the game was a privilege in itself, but to then tell them they were in the semi-finals was such a special moment: they were so excited.

 

After winning the semi-final by 8 runs I then had the absolute pleasure of announcing that we were through to the final!  It was set up in such a way that all schools could watch.

 

Team Brook, although a little nervous, did me and themselves proud again and gave the final everything they had, but it just wasn’t meant to be and we ended up in 2nd place out of twelve teams!”

 

A parent who attended said, “Just wanted to pass on what a joy it was to see and watch a happy bunch of children that played an amazing game together. I’ve never seen such great teamwork at such a young age. They were so pleased where they came 2nd: there were no tears or sadness. Also a big thank you to Mrs Sharp for being a great leader with all the kids listening and taking all instruction from her.”
