Last Friday, our Certificate II Sport and Recreation students visited Beenleigh Special School (BSS) to assist in the running of their DreamCricket day.
DreamCricket is a special needs program (run by volunteers) enabling the community to create opportunities to grow self-esteem and inspire confidence in children through cricket clinics.
The day consisted of our students running cricket stations and getting the keen students of BSS involved in some fun activities; these responsibilities also involved adjusting the stations accordingly to each child's individual needs.
This was just two days after the same group of students did an excellent job at running ball games for 400+ primary school/grade 7 students- so they were well prepared to take on this coaching role.
HPE Curriculum leader Joshua Lennox said he was very proud of the students who participated.
“It was a fantastic day and I cannot speak highly enough of how our students represented the college”.
“It was a real eye opener at times for our students and I was blown away by how well each of them cared for and engaged with the special needs students (aged from prep to grade 12) they worked with throughout the day”.  
Well done to all who participated!
