Primary Cross Country Festival

Primary Cross Country Festival

The Park Primary Cross Country Festivals have been taking place over the last two Thursdays for Y3/4 and Y5/6.  We had all 8 of our feeder primary schools taking part with approx 450 to 550 runners at each event.
All ran in girls and boys races, on a course around the top school field, Park Lane field and around the fields behind the astro.
Our Sports Leaders were on hand to support the event.
Approx. 50 students from Y7 and the same from Y8, are selected each year to receive extra support and training to develop their leadership skills. This takes place in extra training sessions in their PE lessons. These leaders are then given the opportunity to practise their skills at the primary school festivals throughout the year. 

The primary school festivals involve all year groups from Y1 to Y6 and cover activities such as athletics, cricket, tennis, rounders, football, netball, multi skills and multi sports.
