District Cross Country
On a very cold Tuesday 25th January, 25 of our key stage 2 children represented the school in the district cross country event at Haileybury Turnford.
All the children overcame any pre-race nerves and started the 1 mile course against six other local schools. Cheered on by their teammates, the children performed brilliantly and challenged for the medals in every race. Our most successful runners were Mason Tucker (gold medal- Year 4 boys), Ryder Wallis (silver medal- Year 4 boys), Lottie Sturge (silver medal- Year 5 girls) and Harley Wells (silver medal year 6 boys). There were numerous other top 10 finishes and 25 personal bests.
Congratulations to all the team who were great representatives of the school on and off the track.
As the holidays approach Hertfordshire Public Health has provided some useful ideas and projects to support children’s well being over the school holidays.
Throughout the holidays @JustTalkHerts will be sharing practical tools and resources online. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us – email@example.com
