Cross Country

Today students from 3-6 walked to Islington Park to participate in our annual Cross Country event. It was great to see so many students having a go and trying their best. Well done, everyone! Special thanks to Mr Slade for organising today’s event. Below are some photos, thanks to Mrs Bowman, including a clever advertisement starring our very own Vinnie!

Cross Country

Well done to all of our students who took part in our Cross Country event at Islington Park yesterday. It was great to see everyone get involved and do their best. Zone Cross Country will take place on the 27th March for students whose race times qualify. Thanks to Mr Slade for his organisation.

Zone Cross Country


A special report from our Zone Cross Country correspondent and photographer, Nelson G-

As the grey clouds zoomed across the sky, the Zone Cross Country carnival commenced!


First there was the 8/9 girls event followed by the boys. After that there was the 10 years girl and boy race. The 11 year boys (which consisted of most of the Tighes Hill team) zoomed past the finish line. The 11 year girls had a wonderful race and scored lots of points. The 12/13 boys and girls were last for the day and also performed exceptionally well.


Everyone behaved very well, the weather held off throughout the events and everyone was really tired by the end. The day’s final score was; Kids:1, Storm:0.

Well done and thank you to Nelson for offering to report on this event for our blog and taking some fantastic photos!

Today, thanks to the fine weather, students participated in their Cross Country events at Islington Park. It was great to see all students competing, doing their best and cheering each other on.
