Pre-Primary boys visit WACA
Pre-Primary boys from Meg Walsh’s class went on an excursion to the WACA (Western Australian Cricket Association) Ground recently as part of their learning on ‘Our Community’. The boys had a tour of the museum, a run on the ground and even met some Western Fury players.
Mrs Walsh said it was the first time Christ Church Pre-Primary students had visited the WACA. “We have been extending the idea of what our community means, especially since Harmony Day where there are so many cultures living together,” she said.
“Our visit showed the boys the WACA is where people go for leisure and entertainment and where people from different cultures can enjoy time together and support their team. It is also a place where the boys see hard work and resilience pays off.”
The boys enjoyed their visit to the museum, led by tour guide Steve, and particularly the old clock, which used to be on top of the grandstand and still works. They also loved looking at the autographed cricket stumps, as well as the old cricket bats. After sitting up in the member’s stand, the boys had a chance to run around on the ground where they met Western Fury players Chloe Piparo and Leigh Kasperek.
Some other ‘community’ excursions in Term 1 included a visit to the Claremont Post Office and Coles.
