Tawhai School


Northern/Central Zone Cross Country


August 11 2020

What a perfect day for a cross country run!! 44 students and several adult helpers boarded the bus this morning to head up to Trentham Memorial Park for the combined Northern/Central Cross Country. There was a lot of excitement, quite a few nerves and plenty of energy coming from the selected students, including 3 of our Year 3 students who made it into the Year 4 races. Each race had around 80 students running so the competition was fierce and the determination on their faces to do their best certainly showed. All the Tawhai students did themselves proud, displaying great resilience to complete the 1km race for the Yr 4s and the 2kms for the Yr 5s and 6s. We had a very impressive result of 12 students getting straight through to the Inter zone Cross Country next week and several possible reserves. A big thank you to Ang Whitmarsh, Renee Saul, Nicole Brown, Gavin Marsh and Melissa Gane who helped out at the event today, as well as those who helped me capture our wonderful students on camera. The Inter zone event will take place next Tuesday at Trentham Memorial Park.
