Cross Country

**Guest Post by Kain**

The year 4, 5 and 6’s competed to get into the cross country team, which then gets to participate against other schools.

Four people from my class got into the team.  Riley, Liam, Charleigh and Mia.

I really wanted to get into the team.  I didn’t do that good as i had a sore foot and a stitch and i did not get in the team.

Cross country is a big challange especially the big hill we had to run up!

Cross country was held in school time and we had to run about nine Kms and the track went behind Riley’s house.

It was hard but at least I finished, that is all that matters.

Cross country was difficult but I did it and I am so proud of my friends who made it in to the team!  Hopefully i make it in to the team next year.

How do you feel about cross country?

Do you like cross country or not?

On Thursday 24th of April, all Grade 3-6 students competed in the Killara Cross Country.


We began the course outside of school and ran alongside the creek, before re-entering the school and finishing at the end of the race track. Below is a map showing where we ran:

Miss Fraser had the task of starting each age group’s race because she had a megaphone. At the start line, we took some photos known as “selfies”
