Visitors bowled over by cricket

Michigan schoolchildren try their hand at an Aussie game

Schoolchildren from the American state of Michigan were treated to a taste of Aussie life when they visited students at St Columba’s Primary School, North Leichhardt (pictured).

The trip for the 43 students aged 11-13 was part of the People-to-People Students Ambassador Program.

They visited several other Catholic primary schools in Sydney including St Michael’s, Stanmore, St Francis of Assisi, Paddington, St Therese’s, Denistone and St Fiacre’s, Leichhart.

At St Fiacre’s school the visitors took part in regular classwork before playing a game of cricket, led by first grade players from the Balmain Cricket Club, and soccer, led by the Parramatta Eagles Soccer Academy.

They then had a go at bush dancing and indigenous art before enjoying a barbeque lunch.

US President Eisenhower established the ambassador program for youth in 1956.
