Ben Hollioake Learning Centre Awards Ceremony

Yesterday saw this year’s awards ceremony for a number of our primary children who have taken part in the cricket coaching and creative ICT programme that has taken place after school at the Ben Hollioake Learning Centre at the Oval cricket ground. This programme is generously funded by Surrey Cricket Club and the Walcot Foundation. Children from St John’s Angell Town, St Saviour’s, Christ Church Primary SW9 and Archbishop Sumner primaries have attended weekly after school sessions. They have made presentations using the software Comic Life and podcasts about the ground, including interviews with players and staff. Each week the children have also had cricket coaching from the club. Awards yesterday included categories for best podcast, best comic, best cricketer, high attenders, most improved pupil in terms of behaviour and effort and most hardworking and helpful pupil. All the children received certificates from players at the club. Thanks to everyone who made this opportunity possible and we look forward to developing more opportunities for our children at the Oval with Surrey Cricket Club.
