Last Saturday the Division One cricketers took on Waaia at home.

Stuart Pyle and his sons Lachlan and Darcy took to the field playing their first game together.

Darcy took a great catch while Lachlan was very handy taking four wickets.

Stuart showed his fitness in the field, and all three enjoyed their first official game together.

Unfortunately Berrigan had their first loss of the season.

This week will be a bye for Division One and Two.

The Year 5/6 students from St Columba’s Berrigan and Sacred Heart Tocumwal had an amazing history experience in Ballarat last week.

A Kryal Castle, the students participated in activities where they learnt about living in the medieval times. They tried on different types of armour and fought one another with ‘fake’ shields and swords.

Their efforts in archery were pretty awesome, with some hitting the target!

During their visit to Sovereign Hill, the students watched ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’ where they all became part of this event — ‘the Eureka Stockade’ — with what they saw and heard.

Walking through a mine was claustrophobic for some (mainly the adults) but seeing the biggest gold nugget certainly got everyone’s attention.

Everyone returned home tired but elated with the friendships and everlasting memories made.

George and Leila Batten are mourning the passing of George’s cousin John Hoare in Perth on October 6, aged 82.
