Interschool Cross Country
On Wednesday 21 June, 42 Churchlands Primary School students set off to compete in our annual Interschool Cross Country, down at City Beach Football Oval. With some wet weather early in the morning, the sun came out to greet all the runners for their races.
For our year 3 students, this was their first taste of Interschool competition, and wow they were outstanding as they took on their 2km course. It was great to see how much resilience the Churchlands kids showed throughout the day, especially with the change in distances from previous years and the extended distance to the CPS cross country. Our year 4 students also tackled the tough 2km course, and our year 5 and 6 students took on a challenging 2.5km course.
Congratulations to all our runners who represented Churchlands Primary School, with such pride and passion on and off the running course.
Cross Country might seem like it is an individual event, but the teamwork shown by Churchlands shone through as students worked together to allow each other to be at their best. This reflected a very impressive 5th place overall in the team standings. Next up for our sports team is the Athletics Carnival in term 3 which Churchlands PS will be hosting this year. So make sure you get training and always remember to “Be Awesome”.
