Year 5 children at St Mary Magdalene primary school in Hastings Road were thrilled to be winners in the Sussex County Cricket Club’s World Cup Competition. The school was one out of four schools across the county who were invited to Hove and attend an exciting day of mini cricket matches, a tour of the museum, lunch in the pavilion, and then presentation of medals and winner’s trophy.
In the run-up each school had to make a presentation as a different cricketing country and St Mary Magdalene’s destination was the United Arab Emirates.
The youngsters decided to make date-based biscuits, and created a dance and interactive quiz. The school was notified after a few days that they were one of the top four schools selected and so ten children went on to attend the day in Hove.
