Congratulations to all the members of the school community who supported Run Geelong on Sunday. We had quite a crowd representing the school in events ranging from the 12km run to the 6km run and walk as well as the shorter event for the younger children. I was particularly impressed with some of our older students who confidently tackled the 6km run and recorded good times in fairly hot weather.
We had over 60 members of our community register with our school and they joined the approximately 13,000 other runners and walkers on the streets of Geelong on Sunday morning. We ended up in 6th place out of all the Geelong schools and have won a $250 Hart Sports voucher. More importantly though, we had lots of families enjoying physical activity together in the beautiful sunshine and raising valuable funds for The Geelong Hospital.
Many of the students proudly donned their red shirts (and hats, sweatbands and capes) at Assembly yesterday morning.
Well done to everyone who participated!
