Netball tour to Singapore and Australia
9th August 2019

Thirty-one netball players from Bromsgrove School enjoyed a fantastic tour to Singapore and Australia at the start of the summer holidays.

The tour started in Singapore, where they visited the nature park Gardens by the Bay, caught the cable car to Sentosa Island, played against the Singapore U19 and U17 National netball teams in their National Stadium and enjoyed lunch at the prestigious Singapore Cricket Club.

From Singapore, the netballers travelled to Perth, with four teams representing the School in four matches. The major highlight in Perth was the fantastic wildlife, where the pupils fed kangaroos and took photos with koalas, wombats, snakes and various other animals. They  visited Rottnest Island from Perth, enjoyed the stunning beaches and the adorable Quokkas.

Emma Buckingham, Head of Girls’ PE and Games at the School commented “Our pupils have thoroughly enjoyed their action-packed trip. After jet boats in Sydney Harbour, visits to the Opera House, Botanical Gardens, Manly, Darling Harbour, climbing the spectacular Harbour Bridge, they enjoyed a training session at the Olympic Park and were blown away by the impressive facilities. From Sydney, we travelled up to Cairns for our last set of matches. We also explored Kuranda in the Rainforest and had an incredible day snorkelling, taking in the underwater sights from a submarine and glass bottom boat at the Great Barrier Reef. Everyone has created memories that will last a lifetime”.
