A message from Ms Mackenzie to celebrate the efforts of our runners today.
Our thanks to her and Ms Gray for their support of the cross-country team…
Today a team of 12 children took part in the South Highland Schools Cross Country Competition and they were all FABULOUS! With around 200 boys to compete with, we were over the moon at how well our boys team ran with Jake managing to sprint to the finish and take fourth place over all with the rest of the team hot on his heels! While the boys didn’t feature in the top three spots they were a credit to themselves and the school, all putting 110% into their run.
In the girls race our team of P5-7 runners were competing with around 170 other girls and they ran like the wind! Alex in P6 kept her pace fast and steady and managed to take 11th place with Freya and Hannah coming in just behind her. Seconds later the rest of the girls sprinted to the finish line which meant their combined score secured the girls team THIRD PLACE overall.
A HUGE thank you to the parents who helped with transport, marshalling and being there to cheer the children on. I’m sure you were as proud of the team as I was!
Please join me in congratulating our SUPERSTAR runners: Jake, Joe, Ciaran, Gideon, Robbie, Szymon, Alex, Freya, Hannah, Jessica, Annabelle and Grace!
