Interschool Cross Country


Well done to all students that took part in the Interschool Cross Country Carnival yesterday at City Beach Oval. The rain stayed away which allowed the students to run in fine conditions. A great team effort resulted in our team achieving a fabulous 2nd place; only 33 points behind 1st place winners Wembley.

This result reflects the efforts and coaching support provided by parents Raf Baugh (over a number of years), as well as Mark and Naomi Watters. Raf coordinates the Trackstars Program, at Mount Hawthorn Primary School.

We would also like to acknowledge Mrs Kenny and Mrs Putt who gave up their time on cold Tuesday and Thursday mornings to coach. Trainings were well attended. We would also like to say thank you to Trudy Benger for putting up the rain shelter yesterday.

Individual achievements:

Claudia – Year 5 girls placed 1st and Mikki placed 4th.

Harvey – Year 6 Boys placed 2nd

Cooper – Year 5 boys placed 4th.

Well done to all competitors as it was certainly a fantastic team effort to finish 2nd.
