Last Thursday saw the running of the 135th annual Ferny Grove S.S. Cross Country. The event was held under the spectre of possible rain and inclement weather. Thankfully, all our fears were allayed when dawn broke to clear skies and students were able to take to the track according to schedule!
Many comments were received that the level of participation this year was close to record numbers. This augers well for the health and wellbeing of our students given the high participation rate. I noticed many students training before and after school in an effort to be race ready. Well done!
The success of the event is a testimony to the dedication of our teachers in providing in class training opportunities as well as assisting on the day. Thank you all.
Thanks also to the large contingent of parents and family members who attended – we are indeed lucky at Ferny Grove that the level of community support is so high – thanks to all who were able to attend.
The results this year were;
