Had fun catching up with the Police and Fire-ies at Victoria University in Footscray yesterday with cricket the vehicle to promote safety and harmony with international students. Full Report here. Commissioner Overland had obviously worked on his batting since our last hit out on Australia/Indian Republic Day!
Having had some pretty difficult issues to face over the last two years with regards to violence and problems in the international student ‘industry’ it was good to see some goodwill and see that some progress has been made. This has been symbolised in the final match of the season for Urban Seed’s Credo ‘Indian Tiger’s’ Indoor Cricket Team which has been playing in the Footscray area over the last two seasons as a way of supporting students and even won a grand final. Vegetarian Pizza seemed like a nice way to finish before the outdoor cricket season commences proper. We are hopeful that more newly arrived students will be able to connect with local cricket clubs as a result.
