Cross Country Team Race October 2018
The first sporting event of the new academic year was the team cross country race held at Five Acres High School in the Forest.
The runners selected to take part were: Jack Lawrence, Harry Dodd, Thomas Weal, Isaac Williams, Tom Freestone, Jasmine Leach, Amelie Kingaby, Lucy Tovey, Daisy Kennedy and Chloe Burson.
There were two races held, one for the girls and one for the boys, over a distance of 1.15km, across an undulating course. Thankfully the sun was shining!
The children's finishing positions were added together to give a total for each race.
The boys finished in 8th place overall and the girls finished in 7th place which is a superb achievement as there were 20 schools from across the Forest taking part.
