On Thursday 26 July, forty-eight of our Year 3-6 students travelled to Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School to compete in the South West Primary Schools Association (SWPSA) Cross Country Carnival. It was tough competition against twelve other schools from Collie to Albany and across the South West region.
With the usual cross-country track underwater from heavy rains, the students had to find their way around an unfamiliar course, but the rain held off on the day to provide perfect running conditions and some excellent results.
With over 70 students in each race, our students placed well and were a credit to the College, earning top ten places in all but two race categories. The Year 4 and 5 Boys performed exceptionally well, with eleven of their twelve runners finishing in the top 30. Bray Tucker and Ash Spowart came fourth in their respective races, while James Teasdale came through with an impressive second place.
Thanks to Mr A Culnane for organising the event, as well as Mrs Ryan, Ms Smith and Mrs Culnane who were in attendance and on course for the day.
