Having fun at the first cross-country competition

On Saturday 24th October students from Year 1-11 attended the first cross-country competition of this “Jocs Esportius Escolars de Catalunya” season at la Muntanyeta Park, Castelldefels.

The event was very successful and was thoroughly enjoyed by all students who competed.

We were very lucky to have so many families who encouraged their children to participate and make the activity an exciting and enjoyable family experience.

Students were split into categories according to age and sex, and covered different distances (2.100 m, 1.800 m, 1.600 m, 1.400 m and 700 m).

The following students achieved a podium finish:

 

Year 1, 2 & 3: Kuzma, Matteo, Gonzalo and Martina

Year 4 & 5: Adrianna, Philip and Carles

Year 6 & 7: Katalina, Valeria, Yeva and Dexter

Year 8 & 9: Marcus

Year 10 & 11: Erik and Ana

 

Our congratulations to all of them!!
