Our team competed against hundreds of other students from ten local schools. All Greenvale students completed their 2000 and 3000 meter events and displayed our school values throughout the day.

Two outstanding individual performances came in the 11 Year Girls race with Alexander Geddes and Chelsea Gillard finishing second and third respectively.

In the overall standings Greenvale PS relinquished the cross country championship, finishing second to a strong St Carlo team.

Many of our students will advance to compete at the divisional cross country championships on Wednesday June 1st.
