Cross Country 2021

Earlier this week, we were fortunate to be able to send 25 children from Year 2 to Year 6 to compete in the annual Cross Country competition at Lynnsport.

The last time we entered in 2019, we had 2 children qualify for the next stage, this year we were able to secure 5 top 10 finishes, qualifying for the next stage in 2 weeks, this is fantastic.

Even more impressive was that 2 of those finished 2nd in their respective races. A huge congratulations to them!

We look forward to attending in a few weeks and reporting more success from our marvellous marathon runners.

Enjoy the pictures of the event.

Thanks to all the children for representing Whitefriars and to Mr Youngs, Mr Major, Mr Tuckwood and Poppy for cheering them on.
