What teachers say...
I had no idea that playing cricket could have such a positive effect on the girls involved in the program. It has been wonderful to see their level of commitment and engagement improve as they built stronger relationships with each other.
For the participants, we have seen improved relationships with staff and increased engagement with school due to a greater sense of belonging.
Our Student Services department feel very grateful that Team Connect selected our school to partner with. We have never been involved with a program like this.
