On Wednesday, 30th August, we held our annual cross country event and this year the weather didn't disappoint. Our Koru Classes kicked-off the event with a 800m run that saw them trying to keep up with one of our Senior students around the school fields and through the gully.
Our Year 3-4 students had to complete the 1.4km that lead them around the back of the school, through the Koru yard, and finally the school gully.
Students in Year 5-8 had to take on our 2km course that saw them run two laps through the school gully.
There was a lot of support from the many parents that came along to cheer on our tamariki, even running with their children to provide support and encouragement. Thank you for taking the time to champion not only your child, but others competing too.
