Rowdy cheering at St Mary’s cross country event

ST MARY'S PS: Continued strong community participation of our school events allowed for an amazing day of cross country running at St Mary's Primary Grafton last week.

All students acquitted themselves well at the carnival held at Junction Hill. Thank you to Clarence Valley Council for the opportunity to use the well maintained grounds.

The weather was kind, the competition was tough, the students enjoyed the atmosphere, and the crowd was rowdy with support.

All primary students participated in the running of the 2km or 3km races where the enthusiasm was infectious.

Congratulations to the students for their efforts.

The infant students were able to show off their skills in the afternoon following a course that snaked through the extensive school grounds.

Many parents, grandparents and carers came along to cheer the runners. Year 6 students ran with their peer buddy in kindergarten and this delighted the little children.

A squad of primary students will be chosen to compete in the Zone Cross Country carnival.
