Country Yr3-6       it’s hard to know where to start, and of course there is always the real possibility that when
                    you start mentioning names you will miss somebody out. Hopefully though, over the
                    coming weeks, we will thank everybody who has contributed either through the
                    Wednesday News, on the night of the auction or in some other way. Firstly I would like to

Dear Parents/Caregivers,
The annual College Street Normal School Cross Country will be held at Ongley Park. The event will involve all
children in Years 3 – 6.
All children will walk to the event with their class teacher.
Year 3 & 4 children have a set course but there is a separate race for girls and boys.
Year 5 & 6 children have a choice of running the more challenging competitive event or the short course event.
The short course event may be walked or run.
Please discuss with your child prior to the cross country which event is more suitable for them.
Children who wish to be considered for the interschool team must enter in the competitive event, not the short course
event. The interschool team is selected from both the children’s on-going performance at school and the results of the
competitive races at the School Cross Country. Six boys and six girls from Year 5 & 6 will be selected for the team.
Twenty four children in total.
Medals are awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Year 5 & 6 competitive events only. All other Year groups receive
certificates for 1st, 2nd & 3rd.

Children will run on outside of cones. Cones will be on their left.
