Central Sports Turf Management student Bailee Meadows has a passion for cricket and for the science behind creating the perfect wicket.
While studying at Central, both interests came together for him - “I got to create my own cricket wicket!”
A Ngapuhi “East Coast boy born and bred”, Bailee left school after Year 12 to begin the Sports Turf Management programme. He says "the Cromwell community welcomed me and made me feel very comfortable.” A keen sportsman, he was pleased to meet other like-minded students. And he says the tutors “made the study easier, more enjoyable, and were also extremely helpful."
Bailee is completing an internship at Eden Park in Auckland and has ambitions to travel and work in international stadiums.
“I have big ideas and even bigger dreams, and have no question that Central’s programme has provided me with the skills needed for a successful journey.”
