Cross Country

Friday, 24 May 2013

On the morning of Wednesday the 15 May, we had our school cross country. For our Cross Country, we had a challenge course for the students that found the full course challenging so that more kids would enjoy Cross Country.

The weather on the day was alright and later in the morning it started to turn to custard but the sun was trying to shine.

The parents' support encouraged more young kids to enjoy Cross Country and attempt to win.

After the morning, at last we got to the prize giving ceremonies and everybody cheered when the top three hopped on the podium.

The order of the events and results are as listed below.

5 year old girls, Grace, Juliet, Talia
5 year old boys, Harrison, Oliver, Adam
6 year old girls, Jessica, Sophie, Neave
6 year old boys, Finn, Liam, Will
7 year old girls, Ashleigh, Lilly, Brianna
7 year old boys, Caleb, Quinn, Ash
8 year old girls, Emily, Andie, Zeda
8 year old boys, James, Zach, Kasper
9 year old girls, Millie, Natasha, Heather
9 year old boys, Will, Eli, Iwan
year 6 girls, Sophie, Georgia, Emma
year 6 boys, John, Johnny, Oliver
year 7 girls, Alexia, Anna, Sophie
year 7 boys, Thomas, Dominic, William
year 8 girls, Victoria, Charlotte, Azalea
year 8 boys, Sam,  Zac, William

Thank you MR Ingledew for organizing the "AWESOME" event.

Hi Room 13,

You look as though you gave it your best shot. We had our cross country a couple of weeks ago. We had to run 3k. How many kilometers did you have to run? I am excited to know you better from quad blogging.
