Children from school will once again be competing in Cross Country and Athletics events across the city. Last year in Cross Country they did very well running a considerable distance in all weather conditions. We had successful teams with a few talented sprinters and those specialising in throwing the vortex.
This year we are participating in 4 Cross Country races at All Saints Academy, Knowle Primary, Shakespeare Primary and finally the most challenging Ham Woods. The children performed well in the first race at All Saints with many finishing in the top ten boys and girls across the Plymouth schools. Freddie B finished in first position out of over 40 runners. Cerys-Ann and Charlotte B finished in 4th and 5th place overall in the girls races. It is hoped that the children aim to improve their positions with each race. Look out for the sheets showing individual finishing positions. The effort and training the children have completed has helped. Lets try to improve on last year where after 4 rounds the Boys came a respectable 3rd overall, missing out on 2nd place by only 3 points and the Girls finished 2nd overall. Well done to all who have represented the school.
We also look forward to participating in the Athletics Competitions in the Summer Term.
