During the summer holidays, Alex Holland (Year 12, Pembroke), spent three weeks in southern India. She lived with a local family in Palamaner (Andhra Pradesh) and stayed in a hostel in Vellore (Tamil Nadu). Whilst she was there, Alex helped Indian teenagers with their English and visited various schools and local sights. She gained a real insight into how the locals lived and worked during her trip.
The children benefited from a day at Northants County Cricket Club where they were greeted again by Andrew Hall and former Framlingham College student, Robert Newton who now plays for Northamptonshire amongst several other first-class players. The weather conditions were good and maximum usage was made of the fantastic outdoor facilities.
Presentations about bat-making from ‘Willow Stix’ contributed to another informative and purposeful cricket course at the College.
