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.
