The Junior School Inter-House Cross Country took place on the college grounds on Wednesday 29 May in beautiful conditions for running. Ryan Shine a previous student of the Junior School piped the boys and girls in from Pre-Kindergarten through to Year 5. Anticipation was high amongst the students as they watched the Pre-Kindergarten and their buddies set off for the first run of the day. The Kindergarten followed in what were two enjoyable and keenly contested races. Watching the young students run around the course was a highlight for many of the older boys and parents who attended to watch their children race. The Pre-Primary, Year 1 and Year 2 races were won convincingly by Thomas Millard, Otto Blackburne and Casey Savill respectively. The Year 3 and 4 races were hotly contested with Lucas Fry and Lincoln McIntosh crossing the line first. The house shield lay in the balance with The Year 5 race to come as the students cheered on their peers from the sidelines. Ben Campbell showed a clean pair of heels to his rivals in the Year 5 race with Abe Prendiville and Cooper Royle coming in second and third. David House won the overall shield for champion house in the Cross Country on what was a fantastic day out for boys and parents.
