Cross Country

Today was the annual Leopold Primary School Cross Country!

The conditions were perfect for running, and many parents and relatives attended to cheer on the students.

The Cross Country event was held on the school oval and all students from Prep to Grade Six were involved. The students in the 8/9/10 age group had to run a challenging 1.2km route around the school grounds. The 11/12 years age group had to complete the course twice, running a total of 2.4km.

Here is a bird’s eye view of the route the Grade Three to Six students ran.

Here are some photos of the 4KM and 4KJ students before their run!

To reflect on the event, students typed a recount of the Cross Country on their netbooks.

Here are the recounts written by Meg, Jude and Ava.

Well done to all of the Leopold Primary School students for their fantastic effort today!

4KM and 4KJ would like to thank our P.E co-ordinator, Mr Hair, for his excellent organisation of the Cross Country!

4KM and 4KJ in the District Cross Country!

On Friday 30th March, the Leopold Primary School Cross Country was held. The top ten students in each age group were chosen to compete in the City to Surf District Cross Country against three other schools.

Today three 4KM students and five 4KJ students travelled with Mrs Morris to the lovely Torquay foreshore for the event.

Well done to Elijah from 4KM who came 3rd in the 8/9/10 year old boys age group.

Congratulations to Hannah from 4KJ who also came 3rd in the 11 year old girls age group.

Becky, Lachlan, Ehberneese, Olivia Y, Sophie and Jess also ran excellent races and should be very proud of their efforts.

We wish Elijah and Hannah all the best for the next Cross Country event in late May.

Today was a special day because it was the Leopold Primary School Cross Country. It was held on the school oval and all students from Prep to Grade Six were involved. The students in the 8/9/10 age group had to run a challenging 1.2km route around the school grounds. The 11 years age group had to complete the course twice, running a total of 2.4km.

Here is a bird’s eye view of the route the Grade Three to Six students ran.

It was terrific to see everyone try their very best during the Cross Country. Some special achievements to acknowledge:

Elijah (4KM) won the 8/9/10 boys event.

Hannah (4KJ) won the 11 years girls event.

Becky (4KM) came third in the 11 years girls event.

Participating in the Cross Country and cheering for all of the other students was so much fun.

A big thanks to Mr Hair for organising this terrific school event!
