' Seeing the excitement on their faces is pretty amazing. ' CJ Bruton Shooting hoops with the New Zealand Breakers isn't a bad way to spend lunchtime. Shelly Park Primary students got to do just that when the basketball team visited the Howick school as part of their work with the com- munity. Community partner- ships manager Hayden Allen says the idea behind the visits is to give children throughout Auckland the oppor- tunity to see the sports stars up close and per- sonal. The schools are given Breakers basketballs, teaching resources and the champions' booklets to collect autographs and learn about the team values. It's about getting bums off seats and encouraging kids to be more active,'' Mr Allen says. The response we get from the schools after a visit is awesome, every- body really enjoys them- selves.'' Breakers player CJ Bruton says visiting schools is one of the best parts of the job. It's cool to be part of something they'll always remember and cherish. Seeing the excitement on their faces is pretty amazing.'' He was impressed with the Shelly Park students' sportsmanship and ability. There are always students who really sur- prise you with their talents.'' Visit www.nzbreakers.co.nz for information about their partnership programmes.
