Tomorrow is our annual School Cross Country. Unfortunately we can no longer welcome parents, grandparents and supporters onto our grounds. However standing 2 metres apart on the reserve, playground area or outside the school grounds on the Devine Roadside – away from where our students are running could be possible. We ask you to be at least 8 metres away from students as many of you will be cheering them on.
The weather forecast looks a little cloudy but perfect for our Cross Country. If the weather does not cooperate our postponement day is next Wednesday 19th of August.
Maungatautari and Pirongia will be holding their cross country during the morning block, with the
Taupiri cross country starting after lunch at 1:15pm.

What to bring:
Please ensure that students wear their Whanau shirts, suitable running shorts (Skorts are okay along with uniform shorts or any Tamahere sports shorts) and running shoes. We also ask that your child brings a change of warmer uniform to put on after their race, as they may get wet, muddy and cold. Please also make sure your child has plenty of food and water.
We hope that the South East Hamilton Country Schools Cross Country will still be held at Newstead Model Country School on Friday the 28th August. This team will be selected from our top runners in Year 4-6.
