As the School holidays rapidly approach, 25 students and four staff members from Sunshine Coast Grammar School have an extra reason to be smiling as they embark on the School’s fourth annual UK Cricket Tour.
The team will travel to some of the finest schools in England and Scotland to challenge their skills and experience life on the other side of the world.
Teacher-In-Charge of Sport at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mr Mark Henricks will be leading the tour and is excited to be visiting and playing against many schools which Grammar has been fortunate to host on the Sunshine Coast in recent years.
“Touring overseas affords students terrific opportunities. It gives them the chance to travel with their mates, to develop independence and confidence and to forge lifelong friendships,” said Mr Henricks.
The tour will return to Charterhouse, Durham School and Stockport Grammar – schools that are hundreds of years old in comparison. The boys will also have the chance to hone their skills on many of the best village grounds in the world in places like Eccleston and White Coppice.
Tour highlights will include the opportunity visit London, Wimbledon, Lords Tour, London Eye, Manchester United Tour, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, York Minster, Alton Towers Theme Park and of course seeing the Australian cricket team in action.
“It is wonderful that we are able to continue Grammar’s strong tradition of touring and we look forward to sharing some fantastic stories and experiences upon our return,” said Mr Henricks.
