Junior Cross Country
What a wonderful event the Junior Cross Country was last Friday. Every year, the profile of the Cross Country throughout the College has gained more and more momentum and the 2014 Cross Country was no exception.
Students had been practising their war cries over the past couple of weeks and they really “lifted the tents” with their enthusiasm. House tents were decorated with mascots and streamers and captains rallied the troops for action. Watching the students from the Preps to eight year olds running the course, assisted by our Year 6 leaders and House Captains, was such a joy. They all ran their little hearts out and gained points for their House. Every one of them had such a big heart and made the day so exciting for everyone.
However, it’s the attendance and participation of our wonderful College families which makes days like this such an incredible success. The staff and I are always so grateful for the support you always give your children when we hold College events, and also for the P and F participation in providing food for families on the day.
All primary students have enjoyed the lapathon leading up to their big events and Mrs Stott and primary staff were committed to helping students prepare for their long cross country races. Some students finished the course without any sign of breathlessness. Once again Mr Stott organized a wonderful sports day and prizes not only for the winners but lucky place getters, just made the day!
