School Cross Country

The school Cross Country event was held on Friday 13th March from 9.15am-11.00am. Children in Foundation, Year 1 and 2 ran a shorter modified course which had markers set out indicating where to go. There were marshals set out along the course so nobody got lost! Children in Years 3-6 will run in their age group, which is decided by how old they are at the end of 2020. The students who were 8/9/10 Years old ran two kilometres (two laps), 11 Years old ran three kilometres (three laps) and 12/13 Years old ran three kilometres (three laps).

This event will be the selection process for District Cross Country, with the top 10 place getters representing Maramba at District level.
All students from Foundation to Year 6 participated. It would be great to have the whole school out at the beginning to support all age groups and create an atmosphere of encouragement and appreciation as students pass the finish line. These are some of comments from the students who participated:
