Friday 20th of May saw children from grades 3 to 6 travel to Woodleigh Senior Campus to compete in the annual District Cross Country.
The children were fantastic giving their all in the races they ran, helping our school come 3rd in the junior section, 4th in the senior section and 3rd overall in our division.
There are approximately 120 children in each race with all of our children finishing between the 20’s to 70’s.
Our 2 best runners this year were Matty W who ran 8th and Maurice P who ran 11th.
Congratulations again to all the children that competed. A job well done

He told us all about how he learnt to cope with life and how he had to relearn how to do many of the things he always took for granted.
After his talk Brendan took us outside were we got to sit in a wheelchair and play basketball.
