Bundaberg Christian College had two Queensland Bulls Masters teammates coach the primary school students in all things cricket.
The aim of the Bulls Masters is to foster and develop cricket throughout the whole of Queensland utilising retired Queensland cricketers as well as providing community support and assisting charities along the way.
Former Queensland Bulls players Nathan Reardon and Cameron Boyce conducted a cricket clinic for a group of enthusiastic primary school cricketers from Bundaberg Christian College.
Bundaberg Christian College physical education teacher Rod Howard said a group of 25 students participated in a variety of cricket drills that assisted in the development of the players skills including fielding, batting and bowling.
“To have players that have played at the very top of level of cricket in Australia at the school to pass on their expertise was a great opportunity for the young cricketers,” Mr Howard said.
“Nathan retired a few years ago, but Cameron has just finished his Big Bash season with the Melbourne Renegades.
“The students see these players on their television screens and absolutely loved spending some time with them.”
The Bundaberg Christian College has an Academy of Sport program for cricket, and recently started up a girls cricket squad with 25 players joining up.
Mr Howard said last year the Bundaberg Christian College boys team won the local Woolworths Cricket Blast competition in Bundaberg, and travelled to Gympie for the Sunshine Coast Regional Finals.
At the end of the clinic the students took the opportunity to take a photo with their cricketing stars and get some items signed by Nathan Reardon and Cameron Boyce.
While in the Bundaberg Region the Bulls Masters will play a T20 Match at Salter Oval on Saturday night.
