The Soccer in Schools program sets out to engage students through football and provide them with a positive football experience. It continues Wanderers commitment to making sure football programs are accessible to schools in the Western Sydney region.

For 4 weeks, a group of 12, cricket loving boys from years 9-12, participated in the Sydney Thunder Leadership program. With some video help from the programs ambassadors, Gurinder Sandhu, Usman Khawaja and Fawad Ahmed, we learned what it means to be a leader and how to set goals. Hameed Kerkhah ran the Sydney Thunder program for us and he told us about his story in becoming the rookie player for Sydney Thunder. It was an inspirational story as he did not think he would be playing cricket alongside Mike Hussy, Jacques Kallis and Shane Watson. Along with the theory, we played some enjoyable cricket drills and games, to improve our batting and bowling skills.

On the first week of the program we were issued with a workbook to complete. Along with working through the book, we were taught how to deal with ups and downs in life with some personal insights from Usman Khawaja and Fawad Ahmed’s international cricket hardships.

On the 17th -19th of March 2017, more than 200 students from across the state, met at The Collaroy Centre and took part in a global conversation. We learnt about leadership, diplomacy and advocacy that connected with issues that challenged the leaders of today and shape our national discourse. Most importantly we built friendships with a diverse array of students from all around NSW and become inspired to deliver change in our local communities, and eventually the world.

After school on Friday the 17th of March, 11 Homebush boys’ students travelled north to the Collaroy Centre where they spent the next two days in intensive workshops and on the final day a 4 hour debate on world issues that the UN faces daily at the University of Sydney Law School.
