The Primary Cricket Academy, initiated by the Cricket Wing was launched on 24th June 2014 with the blessings of Rev. Bro. Janaka Fonseka – Director of St. Benedict’s College and Rev. Bro. Benedict Bonaventure – Principal of the Primary section. It was very encouraging to note that around 60 students who were very enthusiastic and keen to learn the game of cricket, turned up for the first session of training.
The students selected from Grade 4 will be coached by Mr. Edgar Thevarayan and Mr. Joe Saverymuthapulle while Miss. Sterlina Fernando – Teacher from the Primary will be in charge of the Academy.
Practice sessions will be held every Tuesday and Thursday of the week from 2.15 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. and going forward, a final pool of 40 students will be selected from the group who will undergo further training and be selected into the junior cricket squads.
