Waihi East School Cross Country (2.06.16)

Thursday 2nd of June dawned fine and still for Waihi East School’s Cross Country, despite recent rain and a reasonably soft ground fast times were recorded by year 6 students Monika V and Jackson W. This pattern continued in many of the year groups with Tiare P (who did exceptionally well last year going on to race at Western Bay of Plenty level) and Callum Mc standing out in the year 5’s girls and boys races respectively. Plenty of determination was exhibited by the runners as cheering children and their families encouraged them toward the finish line where place getter certificates were awarded for first through to fifth place.

The Waihi East Primary School event leads on to the Waihi District Schools’ Cross Country at Morgan Park (run on Wednesday 8th June) which includes six schools from the Waihi/Waihi Beach area).
