Cross Country

This is an annual event that is attended by the entire school, with an open invitation to parents and family to come along and cheer for their son(s) and / or daughter(s). 

Our Whole School Cross Country is traditionally run in Term 3, so look out for dates to be confirmed in the Term 3 Long Term Plan sent out to families or classroom newsletters.
 
Every child has the opportunity to successfully complete a course that is appropriate for their age and year level, from the 5 year olds in Year 0-1 right up to the 12 and 13 year olds in Year 8. 
 
 All children that successfully complete their prescribed course earn points for their house team in our school Inter-House competition. Points are also up for grabs during the anticipated Inter – House School Chanting Competition.

Students in the upper school, from Year 3 to Year 8 are selected (if they qualify) to test themselves against the best from either the Hamilton area – Hamilton North West Inter School Year 4 – 6 Competition, or other students (Year 7 & 8 level) from as far away as Whitianga on the Thames Coast, to Otorohanga and Te Kuiti in the heart of the King Country at the Whole Full Primary School Association Competition.
