House Cross Country – Yrs 3-6

Our House Cross Country took place this morning along the bike trail in Edithvale Welands. The morning was a great success. Our students aged 9/10 years embarked on a 2km course, while those aged 11 and 12/13 years challenged themselves with a 3km distance.

A massive thank you to Mrs Love for all of her organisation of the event! Our Senior School staff and parent volunteers were an amazing support, and we could not have done it without you. Thanks to Jane Gray for once again providing a high level of First Aid assistance. 

Students who were successful in making out District Team will be notified by Mrs Love. The District event will take place on FRIDAY 10TH MAY.
