Last Tuesday 27 March children in Years 2-6 competed in the Annual St Paul’s Cross Country. Due to the wet weather this day was moved from Gooden Reserve to the school grounds. We were fortunate the Mother Nature was on our side and the sun was shining. One student excelled in this event by managing to lap the other students in her event.
Congratulations to the children who have progressed to the Diocesan Cross Country in Term 2 held at Eastern Creek. These children will be competing against children from the Cumberland, Blacktown, Hills and Nepean dioceses. We look forward to hearing how you go at this event.
Running events like this encourage children to improve their cardiovascular health and with the current bad press of childhood obesity, St Paul’s encourages everyone to be actively involved. Even though this event is a school event, the children are competing against themselves and trying to achieve their own personal bests.
Thank you to all of the parents/grandparents who came along on the day to support our students. Days like this cannot be held without your support.
