Netball practice sessions with Pam Cookey – Former England Captain

On Tuesday 16th January, 4 prep 6 children and 2 prep 7’s went to a netball training session with Pamela Cookey at Malvern College. Pamela Cookey was the England netball captain and a commonwealth games medallist. The girls arrived at Malvern College where Pamela gave a presentation about her life and how she had to overcome many obstacles to become a successful netball player. This was a fascinating talk and she explained the importance of studying and getting an education as well as wanting to pursue her dreams. The girls then took part in a training session with Pamela and played in a tournament against the 6 other schools. They learnt so much from the afternoon and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
