Congratulations to the 45 Drysdale PS runners who competed in the Connewarre District Cross Country at Eastern Gardens.
There were some very impressive performances and a number of athletes have qualified for the Bellarine Division Cross Country on Tuesday 30 May (at Eastern Gardens again).
But, just as importantly, there were a large group of kids who had put in lots of training and enjoyed huge improvements from their results at the House Cross Country last term. These children should be very proud of their efforts.
Our three Year 3 students also performed admirably and all finished well into the top half of their age groups.
We must give a huge thank you to Anna Foot, Aija Heikilla and Bec Blair, who volunteered some of their valuable time as course marshals. Events like this are not possible to run without that level of generous parental support. Thank you also to Mr Stephens and Miss Howard who came along to help out with the team.
Results are now final and we congratulate the following seven students who have qualified for the next round.
