Tempe Public School has a cricket net that was installed with grant funding, about 7 years ago, and because there was not sufficient funding for a cricket pitch, it was never finished. It is dangerous in its current form, because it follows the natural incline of the ground, enabling the ball to pickup speed in the run up. We aim to remove this pitch, level the ground and reinforce it, and install two new cricket nets and pitches. This will enable the school to offer Cricket as part of the curriculum (it's not currently offered), and to rejoin the regional PSSA Cricket competition. We will also partner with Cricket NSW to offer its programs for young players - In2Cricket and Milo T2020 - and Marrickville Cricket Club, which would offer cricket training for primary school aged children, after school, on weekdays. By offering MCC cricket training at school, children who attend Out of Hours School Care in the afternoons - about 30% of the school population attend at least one day per week - could participate in cricket and then go on to OOSH. Providing cricket nets at school will provide new opportunities for our students and children from the broader community to participate in Cricket in school hours and after school.
