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.
