Cross Country at Queenswood School

Posted on: March 18th 2013

"And they were off!" Running, jogging, pacing and finally sprinting to the finish line!

On Friday 8th March, pupils participated in a Cross Country event hosted by Norfolk House at Queenswood School.

Eleven schools took part, with approximately 200 runners in total.  The children performed exceptionally well considering the wet, cold and muddy conditions.

Our runners were fantastic and shone in true Norfolk House School style with particular stand out performances by Huey, who placed 10th and Byron, placed 15th in U/11 boys race as well as Sadie who finished 6th in the U/11 girls race. Fantastic results for our school in a tough competition.

Final results from the day had the U/9 girls in 5th place, U/9 boys in 8th place, U/11 girls in 4th place and the U/11 boys also in 4th place overall.

Congratulation everyone.  You have all done us proud!

Thank you to the excellent organisation of Mrs. Gouws without whom the day could not have gone ahead, and also thanks for the help of many staff on the day to ensure all runners were on time and well fed, post-race. The warm tea and snacks were much appreciated by staff and parents too.

I look forward to continuing to work with the cross country team next season, and achieving as well as, if not better than we did this season.
