Wednesday afternoon this week saw the first of our new House Cross Country competition. All pupils were encouraged to participate. Every runner was given a ticket at the end of the race and all of the points collated. The house with the lowest number of points would be the winner.
Despite the tail end of hurricane Gonzalez passing by on Tuesday the field was in excellent condition and the rain held off.
As you will see in the video, the Academy’s pupils really took up the challenge and participated in huge numbers, creating a fantastic event with a real competitive spirit. Pupils ran in Year groups, with separate boys and girls races. The afternoon was topped of with a good number of the staff also running.
