What an afternoon! On Friday 8th November, we travelled to Talkin Tarn with our cross country teams. We had entered a boys, girls and mixed team into the competition and took an 11 strong contingent for the fun run. This year we had 29 children running in the event and this was due to the great amount of commitment they had shown to lunchtime running club this term. The weather was kind to us and all of the children ran exceptionally well against some tough competition this year.
It was fantastic to learn that our school had finished in 3rd place overall which highlighted the consistent level of performance across all of the teams. The boys finished in a very close 4th place, the girls in 5th place and the mixed team in 4th place in their race categories. We also had a number of our children picking up top ten placings: Luca Turner 9th and Neve Miller 4th girl home in the mixed team race, Bryony Williams an impressive 5th in the girls race, Ben Morton and Elliott Morgan finishing 6th and 7th respectively in the boys race and finally, Finley Phillips and Laycie Hillary our first boy and girl to come home in the fun run.
Impressive performances from all of the children who took part in the event. I'm sure many of them will be keen to have another go next year.
Thank you to all of the parents who came to support and encourage our runners!
