Stu­dents bowled over, not out

Canning Times - - NEWS -

A GROUP of stu­dents from Can­ning­ton Com­mu­nity ESC have taken to lawn bowls in re­cent weeks, hon­ing their skills at the Vic­to­ria Park Carlisle Bowl­ing Club.

While most had never picked up nor rolled a bowl be­fore, it was clear to the Can­ning Times dur­ing our visit this month that they had been quick to pick up the nu­ances of the sport un­der the tute­lage of the club’s women’s pres­i­dent Meryl Bolton.

Teacher Cindy Grif­fin said it had been al­most im­pos­si­ble to get the re­cre­ation pur­suits stu­dents off the green in the first of three planned Wednes­day ses­sions.

“They’re ab­so­lutely lov­ing it,” she said.

The re­cre­ation pur­suit stu­dents are en­cour­aged to take part in team sports and also en­joy ac­tiv­i­ties such as pool, ta­ble ten­nis and darts.
