Wednesday 4th February 2015 – Cross Country race at Swanmore Secondary School

Filed under: Whole School @ 9:53 pm

24 children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in a cross country race at Swanmore Secondary School.  There were 4 teams of 6 runners – years 3 and 4 boys and girls and years 5 and 6 boys and girls.

When we go to the event, we were able to see the course clearly and decide strategies for being able to complete the long and tiring race.  For some children this was their first race, so nerves and excitement were high! All of the children were keen to get on with the races as it was very cold standing and waiting at the start line.

Both girls races took place first with the years 3 and 4 running initially.  An excellent effort was made by all of the children, with some excellent finishing positions from Charlotte who came 4th and Daisy who came 6th.  In the years 5 and 6 race, Jodi came 2nd and Rose came 4th – well done!

Next, the boys races were underway, again with a brilliant effort shown by all of the runners.  Again, we had some brilliant finishing positions in both races and the boys should feel extremely proud of themselves.

All of the runners should feel extremely proud of themselves – they were a real credit to BWJS and their talent and perseverance throughout the afternoon really shone through.

Well done to:

  • Daisy, Livvy, Charlotte, Rose, Bella and Amelie
  • Ben, Alexander, Theo, Oscar, Samson and Ben
  • Joseph, Aaron, Ben, Sam, George and Charlie
  • Rose, Jodi, Amelia, Mia, Ciara and Isabella

A huge thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who provided transport and support.  A big thank you to Mr Fickling who drove the mini-bus, was our official photographer and was a big support to the children.
