Please enjoy this piece of writing from one of our talented runners involved. 
On Friday 30th August, a group of wonderful kids took a bus to Newstead School. There we competed in the Country Cluster Cross Country Competition. The sausages were sizzling, and at 12:15 the year 4 girls race had finally begun.

We won all our races but one, Luke for the year 6 boys, Piper for the year 5 girls, Dylan for the year 4 boys, just to name a few. We got lots of kids into the next round, at least 5 in each race. The spectators thought everyone put in a huge effort to race around the track, up hills and across fields. Everyone had a great time, cheering the runners on, eating sausages and playing on the playground. I even fulfilled my destiny by worming over the finish line, to Mrs Hawthorn’s disgust. 

Cheer us on for the next round where we hope to do as well in the races this time. I would also like to thank all the lovely teachers and parents involved in this wonderful event and a special thank you to Mrs Hawthorn, Mrs Copponi and Miss Glenn for organising everything.  Wish us luck for the next event which is on the 13th of September, competing against the City Cluster Schools.
