Cross Country at Salesian School


On Tuesday 4th May the cross country team took part in the inaugural Salesian School Invitational meeting where they produced a sensational performance. With 6 schools attending, 8 separate races were held for Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 with Cardinal Newman runners collecting a superb total of 5 Gold, 3 Silver and 5 Bronze medals!

Cheered on by a fantastic group of supportive parents, every member of the team ran as if their life depended on it and I was extremely proud of each and every child for both their level of effort and their good behaviour throughout the afternoon. It was an extremely enjoyable event.

Congratulations to the whole team – you certainly impressed the organisers, your fellow competitors and other spectators… WELL DONE!
