Cheered on by students in their House, Prep to Year 6 girls participated in the Junior School House Cross Country on Tuesday 7 May.
There were opportunities for students to participate in extension running events to qualify for District Cross Country or complete the course for House points. Prep girls were joined by Year 6 girls as running ‘buddies’ for their lap of the oval whilst Years 1 and 2 completed two laps alongside the Year 6 House Captains. A number of Year 2 students elected to participate in the Years 2 and 3 800m course, whilst some Year 3’s accepted the running challenge to participate in the 9/10 age group for District selection. The 11 years and 12/13 years age groups completed the course twice for District selection (3km) or once for House points.
Well done to Mansfield/McKie for winning the Girls’ Junior School Cross Country this year. On being presented with the Cross Country trophy for 2019 by Mr Fry, House Captain Emily Manton thanked all the girls for their participation, effort and House spirit.
Final Results: 1st Mansfield, 2nd Somner & Watt, 4th Gordon, 5th Cross
