For the past two weeks students at Dubbo South Public School have had the opportunity to develop their sporting skills thanks to an educational program run by Cricket Australia.

Matt Ellis, Cricket Australia’s Development Manager for Far West NSW, has been teaching the Dubbo students a range of cricket skills.

Students in Years 5 and 6 were developing their hand-eye co-ordination and team work on Tuesday, as part of the educational program.

Mr Ellis said it was a great opportunity for the students to be a part of.

The team at the Clontarf Academy also lent a helping hand on the day.

​“Students are learning skills that they can use outside of school,” Dubbo South Public teacher Luci Gray said.

“It also builds team spirit and co-operation…,” teacher Patrice Kent said .

In total the program is being delivered to the school over four weeks.
