Cross Country training will take place every Tuesday morning in the lead up to the carnival.
Training will commence at 8am.
Please let Mrs Stam know if you are unable to attend.
The Cross Country carnival is coming up early next term (9th August). Nominations are due in week 9. Trials are to be held this Monday in order to get names and numbers for nominations. Then possibly another session early week 9 if needed. Once a team is established we will start training. This year Mrs Stam and Mr Murray will be organizing this event. If you have any questions regarding this please don’t hesitate to ask.
Teacher’s please send out interested runners from year 3-7 to meet on the oval at 12.20 next Monday week 8 with sneakers. The cross country track is 2.5 Km long and goes through the park lands. Students will need to run/jog at least 6-8 laps of our oval without stopping to be able to handle the distance.
