Cross Country

​What a brilliant day we had on the oval last Wednesday for annual cross country. Over 900 pupils performed superbly over varying distances in what turned out to be quite warm weather.
The day commenced with our junior pupils in the 600m dash around the oval area. What a sight it was to see 90 prep boys charging down the home straight at the start of their race. I think if we had had a video steward present he would have been extremely busy! It was then the Yr. 2 and 3 pupils turn to gallop around the school perimeter, a distance of about 900m. At the morning tea break Acacia had established a small points score lead.
It was then the turn of our senior pupils in 8 races over a distance of 1.6kn. There were some tremendously close finishes as pupils strived for that extra last effort. At days end BLUEGUM emerged as the victorious house. Individual race winners appear below.
I would like to thank the massive number of parents who took time out of busy schedules to come along and support our wonderful kids. Your presence made for a great atmosphere.
