On Thursday May 24th, 59 students from Greenvale Primary School attended Brimbank Park to compete in the District Cross Country.
In ideal running conditions, the Cross Country Team battled against hundreds of runners from 16 local schools.
The students competed across 2000 and 3000 metre events and represented our school with great pride, setting an outstanding example for our school among the local community.
We experienced many great results throughout the day, with 21 students qualifying through to the Divisional Cross Country on May 30th.
Some of our students placed in the top three of their respective events including:
9/10 Year Old Girls: 3rd, Victoria
9/10 Year Old Boys, 1st, Omer
11 Year Old Girls: 1st, Maiya
12 Year Old Boys: 3rd, Royce
In the overall points standings, Greenvale Primary School finished in first place among all of the schools winning another Cross Country Championship.
This result is a testament to the hard work, dedication and high standards of the Greenvale Cross Country team.
The team trained hard each week, constantly motivated each other to achieve their best and most importantly had a lot of fun throughout the process.
Congratulations to the team and every individual on their achievements.
Thank you to the parents for attending and supporting the team.
Thank you to Ms Hickling and Ms Wynd for attending on the day.
I hope to see all of the students running Cross Country again in 2019, and we wish the students competing at the Divisional Cross Country the best of luck!
