A private school will hold its first inter-house cricket match to raise money for pupils who struggle to afford school fees.

Saltus Grammar School started a week of cricket-themed fundraising events on Monday that will culminate in its first ever Saltus House Match.

The match will sort pupils of all grade levels into teams based of their school houses and pit them against one another during a live-streamed event.

The funds will go towards the Saltus Fund, which provides financial assistance to pupils and future pupils.

A Saltus spokeswoman said that 14 per cent of Saltus pupils receive some form of financial assistance.

She added: “Like most independent schools, Saltus relies on the Saltus Fund to realise the difference between the actual cost of a Saltus education and tuition.

“Tuition covers the essentials – the Saltus Fund takes care of the rest.”

The teams will be captained by Lionel Cann, Darrin Lewis, Olin Jones and Sheridan Ming – four long-term school employees and experienced cricketers.

The fundraising week will also include competitions between parents based on grade level and house, as well as daily raffles and competitions for pizza and dress-down days.
