Essex Champions

Year 5 Essex Schools Cross Country CHAMPIONS 2013 

WELL DONE to our Year 5 & 6 Cross Country team for taking part in the Essex Schools’ Cross Country Championships at Hylands Park yesterday afternoon.  On a windy afternoon the children battled their way around the gruelling course, giving absolutely everything they had in order to do their best for the school team.  The Year 5 boys were hailed as Essex County Champions thanks to a splendid effort, with Thomas finishing in 4th place (and very unlucky not to get a bronze medal). A special WELL DONE must also go to Joshua who won a silver medal after finishing in 2nd place in the Year 6 boys race. Our school team finished in third place overall (out of 43 schools from across Essex) ~ what a FABULOUS achievement.  WELL DONE and THANK YOU to Mrs Abbott for preparing the children so well and to Mrs Guinness for looking after them during the afternoon.  
THANK YOU also to our fabulous supporting parents for being with us.
