Joondalup Weekender - - News -

THE Deputy Head­mas­ter of St Stephen’s School re­cently took his love of hockey to India, do­nat­ing sport­ing equip­ment and run­ning clin­ics for un­der­priv­i­leged stu­dents.

Richard Davies, a coach of in­ter­na­tional hockey play­ers, called on lu­mi­nar­ies such as mul­ti­ple Olympian Jamie Dwyer and World Cup gold medal win­ner Tyler Lovell for sup­port. Hockey equip­ment sup­plier and the Perth YMCC Hockey Club also do­nated equip­ment.

“Sur­pris­ingly, India’s na­tional sport is hockey, not cricket,” Mr Davies said. “The chil­dren were over­joyed with the kit and with the coach­ing clin­ics we ran.”

Mr Davies pre­sented the equip­ment and clin­ics at the Good Shep­herd School.
