Week three of Term 2 saw students from Years 3 to 6 compete in the annual Junior School House Cross Country. It was fantastic to welcome spectators back this year and to also have all of the boys out at the same time to cheer each other on. As is the tradition, the boys ran in their year of birth over distances of 3km, 2km and 1km.

The course that the boys ran was set out over one kilometre with the number of laps they had to run determined by the length of their race.

All boys are to be congratulated on their efforts throughout the event as they all strived to do the best for their House.

A special thank you to Mr Becker for his help in setting up the course. Thank you also to all of the Junior School staff for their involvement and support of the day and their willingness to adjust to the change to the program.

Special congratulations go to the following boys for placing in the top three for their age group races.

The overall winning House for 2022 was  Brooks. Second was Alliston-Jones. Third place was Clayton Dyer, with Stokes Ware coming fourth.

For the second year the Palm House boys joined in with our House Cross Country. All of the boys from Palm House were extremely excited to be involved and showed great determination to complete their runs. The boys worked extremely hard to try and run the whole course without stopping. It was so great to see every boy run past the finish line with a big smile on their face. A big congratulations must go to our Junior School leaders, who despite already running in their own events, made sure that they ran with each Palm House year level to ensure that they all had the opportunity to succeed. They displayed brilliant leadership.
