Cross Country and More

June 18, 2018

Lots happening, as usual, here on the Terrace.

We had our annual cross country last week and once again it was a great success.

For the last several weeks classes have be  out almost daily practising for this big event and it all paid off on an ideal morning and afternoon for cross country running.

The juniors ran in the morning with all the school out their cheering them on and it was then the middle and seniors turn in the afternoon.

We are extremely lucky to have large grounds at The Terrace that can accommodate a school wide event such as this.  There are plenty of trees, tracks (up hill and down) an obstacle course and flat areas that give a great variety to the event and challenges all the runners.

It was a glorious mid winter’s day and relatively dry under foot.  The children were enthusiastic and showed the Clifton Terrace way of giving things a go and persevering.  For many it was a challenge and an opportunity to set some personal goals and strive for excellence.  Well done to all the participants and especially to the winners and place getters at each age level.  A big thanks to Wendy who organised the event and to all the parents and friends of the school who turned out to support the children.  Congratulations to all the winners and especially to Hogan and Abby, the champion winners for 2018.
