Thank you Madisen for filming the starting of each race for us.
Thank you Room 10 and the helpers for your great cheering.
Thank you to our parents for coming along to watch and for helping us be organised to run today.


  1. We were exhausted after our race yesterday. We had so much fun cheering on the other runners. We found going up the hills hard. What was the hardest part of the course for you?

    From Mrs Blair and Room 12

  2. Liz won her race and she thought the second hill was the hardest. She walked fast up it.
    Georgia who came second in her race thought going through the carpark was hard because you have to pass through the cars carefully.
    James thought the footpath by Dawson Street was the hardest.
    Lacey thought the 2 laps around Putikitiki and then the hill were hard because she was tired.
    Robert found the hill down to Putikitiki tricky because the stones were slippery.
    Phillip thought it was hard when everyone was pushing.
    We hope you all had fun doing the Cross Country.
    From Room 14

  3. We were so surprised to see such a long comment. Tahlia can remember that everyone was pushing her at the start line and Lachlan found it hard when he was strolling up the hill and people were pushing then too.

    We had to run two big laps around the school. We were sweaty and tired after that.
