Kormilda College is well known in the territory for its cricket program, affording students considerable opportunities to participate in a range of cricket tours, exchanges, training and competition both locally and internationally.
Kormilda is the only school in Darwin with a turf wicket, which is meticulously maintained by our own curator. We have a long tradition of developing junior cricketers, and students of all ages and ability levels are encouraged to play. Over the years the College has maintained strong links with both international and interstate schools and there is in place a long-standing series with Trinity College in South Australia between the First XI teams. The U/15 squad also recently had the opportunity to undertake a weeklong tour of Alice Springs to compete against our sister school, St Philips and other Alice Springs teams.
In addition to this, a strong link has been made with Singapore Cricket for them to visit and stay at Kormilda College on an annual basis in the mid-year giving our students the opportunity for competition at an international level. In 2013 Kormilda travelled to Malaysia and Singapore to play a series of matches against schools and clubs from South-East Asia. The College has also hosted the Nepal U/19 cricket team before the ICC U/19 World Cup for a fixture against our First XI in 2012 and School Sport Australia competitions have also been played at the College.
A number of NT, state and international players have come through the Kormilda College cricket program including recent international Kane Richardson and former South Australian cricketer, Julie Woerner. The College is well regarded throughout the territory for its cricketing prowess.
Complementing the philosophy of developing the overall cricketing knowledge of our students, Kormilda also offers an umpiring program. Qualities like integrity, honesty and respect are intrinsically linked to the role of an umpire and to the spirit of the game. Kormilda College provides nationally accredited Level 1 umpiring courses enabling those students that are interested in pursuing accreditation to participate in order to gain the skills and knowledge to capably manage that role.
Both boys and girls are invited to express their interest in being part of the program by contacting any of the following staff members: Mr Matthew French (Head of Sport), Mr John Semaan (Head of Cricket) and Mr Wolfgang Woerner (Assistant Principal).
