Cross Country Class

Congratulations to Queen of Apostles for their great showing at Tuesday’s Inter-school Cross Country Carnival. Queenies finished 8th overall, but third in the APPS shield – which is based on school enrolments. A great result for the smallest school participating.

This carnival culminates many mornings of lap running in which so many students have been involved in. The turnout each Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning has been overwhelming.

Cross country is such a physically and mentally challenging event. We are proud of our team for pushing themselves across the line and showing resilience when faced with difficulty. Our students will grow from the experience.

Special mention must go to our dominant yr 6 girls team who placed 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 14th out of 45 runners! That is an amazing feat. Sienna Lilly and Ella Anton brought home silver and bronze medals respectively. Kyle Willesen placed 4th in the year 4 boys race.

Thank you to the many parents for helping support our team. The atmosphere in the Queenies camp was fantastic. Thank you to those parents who volunteered as course marshal. And finally thank you to Miss Jacob for looking after our team all day.

Faction Cross Country

Well done to our year 3 – 6 students for their incredible efforts at our Faction Cross Country Carnival last Friday. Thankfully the weather was kind and with a great turnout of parents and grandparents watching, our students pushed themselves to get to the line. We were so proud of our gifted runners and our challenged runners alike, with many individual stories of determination and effort.

We have had an amazing turnout of runners before school leading up to the carnival – 149 runners with a combined total of 6123 laps!

Thank you to the many parents and grandparents who supported all our runners. Your involvement created a supportive atmosphere. Thank you to our teachers for assisting on the day, and to our faction leaders for their input.

Luemmen won the day with the most points, while Magdlen won the ‘Bouns Points’ shield, largely due to the huge number of laps completed during lap running in the mornings.

The results:

Overall: Luemmen 267, Magdlen 256, Flynn 253, Canning 250.

Bonus points Shield: Magdlen

Lap Running

It has been wonderful to see so many students and parents at lap running before school. Our runners are keen to add to the tallies on their lap cards, and earn points for their faction in the process.

It is such a healthy and positive way to start the day – exercising and socialising with friends and family. It’s not too late to come along and join in! The details are:

  • Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8.15am on the Annex oval.
  • Join in whenever you arrive at school (we stop at 8.35am).
  • First timers grab a faction coloured lap card when you arrive.
  • Parents and siblings welcome.
