The University of Notre Dame Australia has teamed up with the Sydney Sixers for the second year running as the Official Education Partner for the upcoming KFC Big Bash League Season - BBL05.

With Notre Dame and the Sixers continuing to seek excellence in education and sport in 2015/16 and beyond, the partnership will ensure that both prospective university students and cricket fans alike don’t get ‘caught out’ this summer.

Notre Dame’s Careers Officer and Student Sports Coordinator, Matthew Bennett, said the University was delighted to join the Sydney Sixers once again as the Official Education Partner.

“Both the Sixers and Notre Dame seek to develop leaders on and off the field, within a vibrant community that upholds values of respect; the dignity of all individuals; and professional conduct with clients, partners and members of the community,” Mr Bennett said.

“And T20 cricket is a relatively new form of sport but it’s here to stay – just as Notre Dame, still seen as a relative newcomer in the university scene in NSW having been here for just on 10 years, but it too is going from strength to strength and is here to stay.”

Mr Bennett said last Sunday’s Sydney Sixer’s fan day at the Sydney Cricket Ground, ahead of the official start to the season on December 17, had a great atmosphere with fans meeting the players and getting cricketing tips. “It’s that personal touch which makes all the difference.”

Sydney Sixers Partnerships Manager, Gareth McCarthy, said the team was pleased and proud to have Notre Dame on board with the University being the selectors’ choice in higher education and a fitting Official Education Partner for the Sixers in BBL05.

“We are also pleased to be able to take on five Notre Dame students as part of our intern program this year,” Mr McCarthy said. “Located in central Sydney, you can spin your career in the right direction at Notre Dame with courses in Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, Law, Medicine, Nursing and Philosophy & Theology.”
