Our courageous cricket team

Our Courageous Cricket Team
Today our cricket team competed against local school in a cricket tournament. Many of the children asked to attend were nervous about the competition and we struggled to make a full team. This is why I could not be prouder of the children who took on the challenge. They overcame their fear and 'risked on purpose'. This a saying that describes times when we push ourselves outside of our usual comfort zone to achieve something new. The reward for this risk is that every child on the team had an amazing time and represented Wood End brilliantly. The leader of the competition commented on how much the team improved with each match. It is easy to say you don't want to take part in a competition because you are scared, it is far more rewarding to give it your best effort. Just ask anyone in our cricket team!
