Cross Country...

With heavy pouring rain unleashed on our arrival at Cranbrook Rugby Club for the annual Cross Country, we knew that the event was going to be a very muddy one.

On Tuesday 7th October a team of 16 pupils from Years 3,4,5&6 took part in 8 races at the rugby ground, with separate races for boys and girls.

The team did exceptionally well with the majority of our runners finishing inside the top 10 competitors. It seems that our previous participation in events at Mote Park, earlier in the year, have really given the children an extra edge in this competition.

Individual medals were given to those children coming first in each event. With a team trophy presented to the school team that finished with the lowest cumulative time score. Goudhurst won the Year 3&4 trophy while Horsmonden retained the Year 5&6 trophy for second year running.

Well done to all those who took part. Below are a few of the results from the races that took place.

Isabelle - Yr6 - 2nd place
Josh - Yr6 - 11th place
Jack - Yr6 - 10th place
Sam - Yr5 - 3rd place
Freddie - Yr5 - 10th place
Nina - Yr5 - 4th place
Chloe - Yr5 - 10th place
