    Cross Country at Eridge Park

    On Wednesday 2 March, nine members of Years 5 and 6 braved the elements to achieve fantastic results in the Cross Country event at Eridge Park. Not only was it bitter cold, the wind was battling us from every direction high on the ridge, as if trying to knock us down, but it didn't stop our keen runners! With around 60 participants in both the boys and girls races we had two members who found themselves in the top 10 - Freya coming 10th and Anthony 7th. The rest of our team, Amy, Millie, Zach, Dillon, Matthew, Tom and Eddie all bettered their previous positions and succeeded in running the whole race and sprinting to the finishing line. I couldn't be more proud!

    Thank you to the parents who also braved the cold and wind to come along and support, with a special thank you to Mrs Kirk-Martin who brought cakes as a treat for all of the children once they had completed the race. They were much appreciated!
