The inter-house cross country competition is planned to be held on Wednesday 31 March (Week 10 Term 1) from 9:15am – 10:25am. All year 7 and 8 students are expected to attend with an invitation to nominate being extended to students in years 9 – 12. Students can nominate in the MPH HPE staffroom.
Participating students will compete for both individual honours and score points for their Sports House. Age champions will be presented during the Sports Awards ceremony later in the year and place ribbons will be presented on year level parades.
We encourage students to participate in their house colours but need to change back into their school uniform for the remainder of the day. Students can walk, jog or run the course with an option of completing 1.7km (1 lap) or 3.4km (2 laps). The cross country course winds its way through the Ag farm before doing a loop of the oval. Those students who complete the full 3.4km distance will be entered into a random prize drawn for a chance to win sporting products.
Students in years 7 and 8 who unable to participate are asked to bring notes from their parents/guardians to excuse them from the event.
