On Thursday 14 August, Year 5 students from St Patrick’s Primary, Parramatta were thrilled to meet Sydney Kings basketball players, Angus Brandt and Jason Cadee.

After introducing themselves and sharing some of their personal stories about where they grew up and started their basketball careers, Angus and Jason ran through a range of ball skills and drills with the students.

The Year 5 students had a wonderful experience and lots of fun participating. Congratulations to Francis Dagostino and Nathan Rizk who were the winners of the fast pass clap game, displaying exceptional hand-eye coordination and impressed the Sydney Kings players.

Jason and Angus played a trivia game with Year 5 and many students received Sydney Kings merchandise for answering correctly. Year 5 teacher Anne Fardell even won a prize for guessing where Angus played his junior basketball.

The players signed the student’s hats and merchandise and even gave out free tickets to their next home game. Students were thrilled to have a group photo with Angus and Jason

At the conclusion of the event, Year 5 students thanked Physical Education teacher David Younis for organising an amazing experience to develop their ball skills and meet professional basketball players.
