Willaston Church of England Primary School

Schools Cross Country Series

School Cross Country Series (Neston Cluster Group of Schools)

The 2018/19 schools cross-country series is now finalised. The dates are as follows:

20th October - Woodfall

10th November - Willaston

15th December - Bishop Wilson

12th Jan - Little Sutton

9th March - Woodlands

23rd March - Our Lady of the Stars & Sea

The aim of the series is to encourage participation and have fun! With this in mind we have made a couple of changes for this year:

Firstly the races will start at 9am. This is to allow children to move on to other events if they wish to (e.g football).

Secondly, this year we have an overall series prize based on the results from each round. Each finisher at every race will be given a ticket with their placing and a number of points (50 points for first, 48 for second, etc). In the hall at each race we will have a box for each school. The child then puts their finisher ticket in the relevant box for their school. The points for each school will be added up and a league table produced which will be circulated. Each finisher earns points for their school no matter where they finish. We will do individual prizes at each race as normal. Hopefully this will both encourage participation throughout the series.

There will be four races in total: Year 3/4 girls, year 3/4 boys, year 5/6 girls and year 5/6 boys. There will also be a 'fun' race for younger children (year 2 and below).

As always parents take responsibility in allowing their children to run. No football boots or running spikes please - this is for the safety of others.

Any last minute updates will be posted on Twitter @schoolxc

Come down and give it a go! Hope to see you at Woodall in October.
