Cross Country Competition
Cross – Country Congratulations!
23 Children from Years 3 – 6 took part at Colyton Grammar’s Cross Country Competition. The children raced in mixed year groups, 3/4 and 5/6. They were up against a selection of schools from across the Axe Valley, covering distances of between 800-1200 metres. Despite the on and off rain and windy conditions, every child lined up at the start line with anxious enthusiasm. Every runner showed excellent determination and resilience, pushing themselves to their limits in order to achieve the best position for their teams. More importantly, I was particularly proud to witness the passionate support from the children not running, often running alongside their other teammates after they had completed their event!
Clearly the children’s efforts on the Daily Mile have paid off, as we came 3rd in the 3/4 Boys and 1st in the 3/4 Girls, 5/6 Boys and 5/6 Girls. We also took home the overall 3/4 team shield and 5/6 team shield (a new event for this season). A huge congratulations to the team, with 3 groups qualifying for the East Devon finals at Bicton College in November!
