Bayley’s celebrate third win


Share post:

Winning the Herman Griffith Primary schools cricket crown has become commonplace to Bayley’s Primary, which the other schools desperately want to end.  

Holding a victory parade throughout the environs of the school has also become commonplace.

On Friday, with principal Alfred Cox and with retiring physical education teacher Winfield Forde leading the three-peat cricket champions and hundreds of their celebrating schoolmates, Bayley’s held a parade lasting over two hours to signal another sports title. 

Fittingly, the show began just after ten to the pulsating strains of Something’s Happening sung by another St Philip monarch Red Plastic Bag.
With residents taking to the street to cheer on the young winners or just to enjoy the spectacle, only one man who lit a massive bonfire seemed likely to disrupt the parade. 

Police intervened, demanding that he douse the fire as billowing smoke raced towards the school compound.
The visiting Wanderers netball team out of Australia also joined in the parade enjoying the music as much as the scorching sun.

 While Bayley’s can boast of the three-peat, principal Cox can point to his own record of four-peat. Cox was the principal of Wesley Hall Primary, the last team to defeat Bayley’s in 2015.

According to Cox, the success of Bayley’s in cricket and other sporting disciplines continues to motivate and inspire the students to seek even better results in their academics. (KB)
