Zone 6 Cross Country
Last Friday we had just under 60 runners compete at the Zone 6 Cross Country at O’Callaghan Park, Zillmere. In difficult cold and windy conditions, ALL the children ran well trying their best and representing their school with pride. The children have trained hard, and with our tactics of running with partners, all the hard work has paid off. Along with some magnificent individual efforts, it was the overall team effort that enabled us to be so successful on the day.

A massive thankyou to the wonderful teachers and staff who helped train the children, but most of all a big thank you to the children for their dedication. Parents, thank you for the extra effort you went to in getting your children to the training sessions before school.

Please see the current newsletter for some of the fantastic results achieved including individuals placed in the top 20.
