Infant Cross Country Event


On Monday afternoon, we learned that our Yr R and Yr1/2 cross country runners all have True Grit! In very warm conditions, 450 children from twelve schools undertook races around a challenging and hilly course in the grounds of Gang Warily Recreation Centre on the Waterside. Mr Dear and I could not have been more proud of the way that every one of our runners competed – many of them even found the energy for a sprint finish! Kruze, from Class 4 placed 3rd overall in the Yr 1 boys’ race, having fallen at the start and that summed up the spirit of all our teams. Congratulations to the Yr 1 Girls team A, who place second in the team event, the Yr 1 boys Team A, who placed 3rd in the team event and to the Yr 2 girls Team A, who also placed third in the team event. Fantastic achievements – but especially so in such demanding conditions! Well done to everyone who took part, you were all amazing!!
