On the 20th September 2017, eight children participated in the Cross Country Festival at Kettlethorpe High School, where six schools were competing.
When the children arrived at the High School, they were told that the Year 3 and 4 children had to run 600m and the Year 5 and 6 children had to complete 1km! This didn’t dampen their spirits as every one of St James students did the school proud. From putting in 100% effort in their races, cheering for all the children – even from different schools, and showing fantastic sportsmanship I couldn’t have been prouder of these eight children.
At the end of the competition all of the results were added together and the winner was announced. The winners of the competition were St James!!!
The children fully enjoyed their afternoon and I would like to thank all our parents and supporters who helped transport the children and who were the loudest supporters there.
