CROSS COUNTRY INTERSCHOOL

By NEWS

Our handful of students participated in the Cross-Country Interschool Tuesday the 25th of July and did a fantastic job representing our school.

The weather was bitterly cold, but our children performed so well and encouraged each other throughout the day. A number of our students found themselves in the top ten places and this is an amazing achievement.

Congratulations to Estelle Schneider and Charlie Schneider for placing 4th and 5th respectively and Troy Kingma for gaining 7th in his race. It was a wonderful team effort.
