Primary Schools Cross Country Event @ Warden Park - Saturday 4th December 2021
A team of Year 4-6 girls and boys competed at the Haywards Heath & Burgess Hill area Cross Country event on Saturday 4th December 2021, and WOW did they do everyone proud!
In both the girls and boys race, Birchwood Grove had an individual 1st place, with Suzie C. winning in convincing style, and then Olly LNF timing his sprint finish to perfection! The way they both managed and ran their races showed excellent maturity, and humbleness in victory. Ben P finished a marvellous 4th in the boys race, with a total of 8 our our children qualifying for the next stage of the event, the MSA Finals to be held in East Grinstead in January 2022.... Results of this to follow!
Overall, with their combined results, our girls finished 6th and our boys finished 3rd out of 11 schools. Well done to all, and a huge thank you to Miss Whinder and Mr Whinder for working so hard in preparing the children for the event, and the Tuesday lunchtime clubs that they have so kindly been organising.
