Whole School Cross Country

It will be held on THURSDAY, 1st April (last day of Term 1) at the Spring Gully Recreational Reserve. Students from Prep to Grade 6 will be competing to the best of their ability. Prep to Grade 2 will compete in their grade level, whilst students from Grades 3 to 6 will compete in their age level. 

Ribbons and House points will be awarded to all students who complete the course. I encourage the children to wear comfortable clothing (preferably House colours) and appropriate footwear.

A spectator area near the finish line will be made available on the bank of the soccer field (school side) for those who wish to attend.

I will need some parent helpers to assist on checkpoints around the course – please let me know if you are available to do this.
