The house cross country competition took place in glorious sunshine. The majority of the children from Year 3 to 8 took part in an afternoon of running to see which House could win the coveted cross country shield. The afternoon started with the children from Years 7 and 8 volunteering to run with the youngest to help them around a hilly and tiring course, in the school’s woodlands, before coming back to join the other Year 7 and 8 children to run an extended course of just under two miles. Records were broken again this year, and a number of personal bests were achieved. At the end of the afternoon though it was Studland House who took the trophy. Thank you to Jake from Year 5 who took the photos below: left to right, Jed, the new boys Year 5 and 6 course record holder, the girls on the cross country course and Elsa the new girls Year 5 and 6 course record holder. Both Jed and Elsa beat their own records set in 2011.
