On Thursday 19th April, Mrs Linfield and Mrs Neale took three teams to the Essex Cross Country Finals where we represented Southend. It was a very hot day and challenging, steep course. All three teams performed incredibly and really were fantastic ambassadors of the school. Each race had 14 teams and as these were the elite runners from across the county, competition was fierce. We achieved some amazing individual performances and perfect demonstrations of team work with all the children supporting each other and keeping each other moving. The Year 6 boys’ team did particularly well, achieving 4th place.
On Friday 20th April, Mrs Neale and Miss O’Connell took the children who had qualified as individual runners. Again, it was a baking day and there was even more competition with over 100 runners in each race! Again, our children were brilliantly behaved, respectful and energetic with some amazing places including: 5th, 14th, 25th, 26th and 30th! Truly inspirational performances and some definite stars to look out for in the future!
Thank you to the parents for all your help and support and to the children who have been training regularly since September!
