Chatham High School supporting Pink Stumps Day

CHATHAM High School's staff, students and community are working together for the Glenn McGrath Foundation, raising money for breast care nurses through Pink Stumps Day.

The support and cooperation of all three groups was overwhelming and inspiring. At last count the school was heading towards raising $2000.

Three separate cricket competitions were held at the Taree Recreational Grounds on April 8. A barbecue and carnival atmosphere made it a day to enjoy and savour.

The Bright Beginnings Chatham High Teachers team defeated the Auscival Year 10 boys team but the play of the day went to Mike Slater, who cleaned bowled his math head teacher, Mr Grimson with the first ball of the innings.

The Taree West Butchery Year 11 team and the TJL Business Advisors Year 12 team both went down to the Mayo Health Group Year 10 side.

A decider between the two undefeated teams is set down for next term.

The Heading Out Online Event Directory Year 10 girls team opened the day's play against the TJL Business Advisors Chatham High Staff team in the women’s division, going down to the teachers by 15 runs.

The Ausmulch Year 11 girls team dominated the Ausorg Year 9 team, setting up a thrilling final with the staff.

Experience shone through in the final with an exciting win to the staff.

Play of the day goes to a one handed crowd catch by Mr Terry Bourke but the awarding of the ‘six’ provided to difference in the two teams.

The junior competition was won by the Taree West Butchery team defeating the Mayo Health Group with the Ausmine Juniors coming in third.

For a donation, local businesses were able to sponsor a team. A big thank you to all of sponsors for supporting and contributing to the health awareness at Chatham High School.
