Key Stage Two Interhouse Cross Country

On Wednesday the 21st March, West Lodge had their first ever Key Stage Two Interhouse Cross Country event. "The atmosphere was absolutely amazing even though everyone was nervous." (Sam) First, Year 3 and 4 Girls and then Year 3 and 4 Boys ran around both fields at Sidcup Rugby Club once (approximately 1 kilometre). After, Year 5 and 6 Girls and then Year 5 and 6 Boys ran around both fields twice (approximately 2 kilometres) . "All four races were very intense" (Isabelle), but the results were as follows:

Year 3 and 4 Girls - 1st Eva (4) 2nd Amelia (4) 3rd Phoebe (4)

Year 3 and 4 Boys - 1st Oliver (4) 2nd Dino (3) 3rd George (4)

Year 5 and 6 Girls - 1st Isabelle (5) 2nd Joanna (5) 3rd Sienna (6)

Year 5 and 6 Boys - 1st Sam (5) 2nd Louie (6) 3rd Stacey (6)

Congratulations to all of the individual winners. However, as Mr Francis stated when results were shared: This race is very much a team event with the average position being worked out for each house with the lowest average being the winners. Therefore, congratulations must go to St. Andrews, and as a result being the first ever winners of the Inter House Cross Country Cup. Well done to all runners, who all equally demonstrated perseverance and dedication. A massive thank you to staff and in particular to Miss Ayling and Mr McCabe for organising this inaugural event. Finally, thank you to those parents who turned up to support this new event.
