South Zone Cross Country

We thank God for a beautiful day and the gifts and talents on show for the South Zone Cross Country at Hansen Park today.

We had 48 runners competing today in the eight races over 2km or 3km.

Well done to all of our runners who made both the start and finish lines – we had some great results, especially in the older age groups. We now have 16 runners qualified for the Canterbury Champs and four South Zone Champions – Holly Smith (Y6 Girls), Lucy Blockley (Y7 Girls), Abby Graham (Y8 Girls) and Gwilym Jones (Y8 Boys).

The Primary Sports Canterbury Cross Country Championships are on Wednesday 22 June at Nga Puna Wai.

School Cross Country Postponed to 6 May

Cross country postponed

Hi Parents,

We apologise for the late notice, but due to unforeseen circumstances, Paul Norton is no longer available for our school Cross Country planned for tomorrow. With the term we have had with Covid, and difficulties with relief staffing cover, we feel it is wise to postpone the event until next term, and will now be held on Friday 6th May.

I completely understand that some will have trained and be disappointed, and we were certainly looking forward to our parents coming back to a school event on site, but this can all still happen on the new date next term.

Blessings,

Gregg Le Roux 

Deputy Principal
