Junior School Cross Country

The Junior School Cross Country will be held next week on Friday 29 June.  The New Entrants and Year Ones will be running around the fitness track for one lap and the Year Twos will be completing two laps.  The races will begin at 11:00 with classes racing the boys and then the girls in this order:

Room 6 boys with Room 8 (Year 2) boys, Room 6 girls with Room 8 (Year 2) girls, Room 7 boys, Room 7 girls, Room 9 boys, Room 9 girls,  Room 11 boys with Room 8 (Year 1) boys, Room 11 girls with Room 8 (Year 1) girls, Room 5 boys with Room 10 boys, Room 5 girls with Room 10 girls, Room 4 (New Entrants) boys and girls running together, Year 2 boys final, Year 2 girls final, Year 1 boys final, Year 1 girls final.

The first 3 runners from each Year 1 and 2 ‘running groups’ will be given the opportunity to run in the finals.  Please remember this is a fun activity and non-competitive. All children will be praised on their achievements.

The children can dress up in their whanau colour, running shorts and shoes. They do not need school uniform on this day, however their clothes should be in whanau colours and be suitable for running.  Drink bottles and a warm sweatshirt will also be needed so that we are prepared for the changeable weather! Please make sure all drink bottles and sweatshirts are named.

Parents are welcome to stay and have a picnic lunch with the children after the event.

  • Please can we ask that spectators MUST stay away from the running tracks and refrain from walking across any tracks whilst the children are in their races.

If the weather forecast is not good the ‘save day’ will be the following Tuesday 3rd July at the same time and you will be notified of this.

Kind regards
