Fun at the Cross Country!

Today was the annual Barwon Heads Primary School Cross Country!

The Cross Country event was held at Village Park and all students from prep to grade six were involved.

The conditions were perfect and excitement was high at this year’s event. Many parents and relatives also attended to cheer on the students.

Most students in grade three are in the 9 year old age group and they had to run a 1km route. Most students in grade four are in the 10 year old age group and they had to run a 2km route.

All Barwon Heads Primary School students are in one of four “houses” or teams. Each house has its own colour. Everyone who participated in the Cross Country earned points for their house. The names of the houses are:

  • Jupiter
  • Mercury
  • Neptune
  • Saturn

Here are the 3/4C students proudly supporting their teams in house colours…

Miss Jordan was at a marshalling point on the track for the grade four, five and six events. It was a little tricky to get good photos of the students as they powered past her at full speed! Here are a few photos she managed to get of the grade four students.

It was close event, but Saturn were the eventual overall winners on the day. Well done to all of the Barwon Heads Primary School students for their fantastic effort today! It was great to see all of the students demonstrating persistence and determination as they completed the Cross Country course.

3/4C would like to thank Mrs Kneebone for her excellent organisation of the Cross Country event!

The conditions were cool and a little windy, but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm from the BHPS students. Many parents and relatives also attended to cheer on the students.

The Cross Country event was held at Village Park and all students from prep to grade six were involved. Most students in grade four are in the 10 year old age group and they had to run a challenging 2km route.

Here is a bird’s eye view of the route the grade four students (in the 10 year old group) ran.
