We teachers really appreciate what the programme does to change people’s lives, especially our students.
My school has been involved with the programme for almost two years. Cricket as a new sport for our school was a challenge at first. But as we went on, it became interesting and is now a sport that many students enjoy. This also gives the students an alternative sport from the traditional games we play.
The programme has made participants responsible, and their interest in the sport has been aroused through the character traits that are taught, which are specific to what we encounter in our lives.
Through the holiday camps we have received positive responses from parents and students, giving the students a sporting chance to keep them away from bad company, drugs and peer pressure. The parents appreciate the programme a lot.
The programme has enabled students develop leadership skills by organising training while the teachers and coaches are not there, as well as developing social skills.
