The school cross country will be held on Thursday 22rd March from 9:15 – 11:00 at Village Park. All parents are most welcome to attend to watch this spectacular event. A coffee van will be in attendance for parent use only.
The event is run at Village Park. The top 8 finishers in the 10, 11 and 12 year age groups will go onto represent our school in the District event on Monday 30th April. While the older children are running, the 5 to 9 year olds will participate in their events as listed below. All age groups are taken as at 31 December 2018, that is, the age that the child turns during 2018. For example, a child turning 10 in 2018 competes in the 10 year age group all year.
THIS IS A HOUSE EVENT AND CHILDREN ARE ENCOURAGED TO WEAR THEIR HOUSE COLOURS ON THE DAY.
