Below is feedback from some of the schools following notification of their successful scholarship application.
This news has made my day! Cricket is part of our school culture and provides very tangible links to numeracy, particularly statistics and links to our community with the support we receive for our competing teams.
The scholarship is ten times the amount of money held in our annual p.e budget for all sports! Cricket balls tend to get smashed onto the roof or into the gorse!
I will follow up with our office staff regarding the requirements for the scholarship. Once again our humble thanks and appreciation.
Thank you very much from all the children of Tairangi School!!! Will certainly put the money to good cricket use!!!
Merry Xmas n a Great 2016
Thanks so much Glen. We are in need of sporting equipment for the children so this is very timely.

Thank you so much for arranging this for us. The teacher and children are delighted.

This is indeed an honour and we are most grateful for your generosity. Our students absolutely loved the Hooked on Cricket Day this year and we found the Canterbury Kings very accomodating and helpful.
Darrin will be co-ordinating cricket at Linwood North School next year and I'm sure we will be sending teams along to next years event.
Keep up your great work. We really appreciate your support of grassroots community cricket.

Thank you so much for choosing us as one of the schools to receive the donation! We are in the process of upgrading some pretty shabby gear so this will help hugely!
On behalf of all the children and staff of Clive School we would like to thank you and the NZCPA for the scholarship!
