Cross Country

On Monday 24th August it was cross country. Room 20 had a lot of fun! We never, ever gave up. The 7 year olds and 6 year olds had to run 2 laps and the 5 year olds had to run 1 lap.
We wore our house colours- yellow for Campbell, red for Chambers, green for Joll and blue for Duart. 

We are lining up to go to the cross country. 

There were lots of people watching cross country and room 20 was excited to run. 

Room 20 was ready to run.
