Many congratulations to the Year 5 and 6 girls and boys who represented the school at the first cross country race of the season on Thursday 22nd September. Each race had roughly 150 runners from at least 20 primary schools in mid Essex. Everyone ran with great gusto and beaming faces. Congratulations to the Year 6 boys team who finished as third best team out of the schools who took part and to Ben H who won the Year 6 boys race by putting in a sprint finish that Mo Farah would have been proud of.

A special congratulations goes to Clark Junior for winning the year 2 boys' race and Emma for coming in 6th place in the year 2 girls' race.
