Greenvale Cross Country 2017

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

The Greenvale Cross Country will be held at School / Bradford Oval on Friday April 28th beginning at approximately 9.15am and concluding at 11.00am.

Every student from Years 4-6, as well as some Year 3 students will be competing for their house and for the chance to represent Greenvale in the district cross country. Students will compete against peers from their age group and all events are gender based.

The following schedule provides approximate starting times for the mornings races:

9.15AM Welcome on Basketball Court
9:30 AM 12 Years and over Boys – 3km
9:35 AM 12 Years and over Girls – 3km
9:50 AM 11 Year Boys – 3km
9:55 AM 11 Year Girls – 3km
10:10 AM 9/10 Year Boys – 2km
10:15 PM 9/10 Year Girls – 2km
10.45AM Conclusion on Basketball Court.

Age groups are based on the age a student will be on the 31/12/2017. For example: all students born in 2008 or 2007 will be in the 9/10 year age group, all students born in 2006 will be in the 11 year age group and all students born in 2005 or 2004 will be in the 12/13 year age group.

Students:

  • are encouraged pack a healthy lunch on this day and have a full water bottle
  • should wear sports appropriate clothing (shoes, shorts and shirt) that help support their house colour, but may need a tracksuit for before and after the event if the weather is cold
  • are advised to bring a complete change of clothes to school to change into after the event (including a change of footwear) if wet conditions are forecast
  • who suffer from asthma should run the cross country event with their asthma medication on them.

We invite all parents and guardians to come and watch their children compete in the Cross Country.

I look forward to a successful day and enjoyable Cross Country for our Greenvale students.
