We had been practicing heaps, first running around the school and then out along the roads. We had to go down Bradford St, along Kaikorai Valley Rd, up Glenelg, along Ronay, through the gate by Grason's house and down the hill to the finish line. Phew! It was hard work.
Then we had the big cross country along at Balmacewen Int where there were lots of other schools as well. We were all really nervous. The Year 5 girls went first. Xanthe and Salani did really well.
Ready. Set. Go!
Then it was the Year 5 boys turn. We were all cheering and yelling. Cameron came 7th.
Next it was the Year 6 girls turn. Lining up at the start was hard because there were so many people. Everyone was pushing to see if they could get in the front. When the clackers went, we zoomed off. It was a long way round the field - you had to run all the way round the sports field plus up the steep little hills. I was glad when I got to the finish line.
Katelyn and Krystal did really well. Krystal got 9th and Katelyn got 10th.
It was a good day. We all felt very pleased that it was over.
