On Thursday the 16th July two of our students, Kane Johnson and Tara Watson, ran in the State Cross Country at Bundoora Park. This was the first time that we have had any of our students compete at State level for many years.

The competition was very strong with approximately 95 high quality runners in each race. Kane ran in the 11 year old boys event and smashed his PB. He ran 3km in a time of 10.54 and came 69th. Tara ran in the 10 year old girls 2km event and also ran a fast time, achieving 28th place.

Congratulations to both students who represented our school, Bridge Inn District and the Northern Region and gave their best efforts throughout. This was a great achievement.
