Cross country event

21/11/2022

We hosted our annual cross country event for Years 4-8 at which there were 50 runners all ready and raring to go. Both the junior and senior race courses involved running around the school grounds and lake.

The juniors (Years 4-6) were the first to run their 2.2km course, setting off with gusto. Well done to all the medal winners:

  • Y4 Bronze: Sebastian R
  • Y4 Silver: Bella and Sebastian B
  • Y4 Gold: EJ and Jamie
  • Y5 Bronze: April and Ned
  • Y5 Silver: Olive and Loftus
  • Y5 Gold: Lucy and Freddie F

The Year 6s set the pace for the junior race and achieved very fast times.

  • Y6 Bronze: Ollie
  • Y6 Silver: Cynthia and Monty
  • Y6 Gold: Lily-Rose and Freddie W

The seniors (Years 7-8) then ran their 3.5km course. There was a lot of excitement amongst the Year 7 girl runners and the finish places were too close to judge!

  • Y7 Bronze: Molly, Imi and Ewen
  • Y7 Silver: Maria, Elisa and Logan
  • Y7 Gold: the twins, Marissa and Ben!

The boys’ Year 8 race was a close fought battle.

  • Y8 Bronze: Ellie and Noah
  • Y8 Siler: Annie and Miguel
  • Y8 Gold: Sarah and Ludo.

The top senior boy was Ludo (Year 8) and the top senior girl was Marissa (Year 7).

The pupils demonstrated excellent resilience, perseverance and empathy towards each other both during and after the races. They also all thoroughly enjoyed the post race snack of a warm pizza pocket and a creamy hot chocolate. Well done to all who competed.
