Cross country at Bishop Walsh 19.09.17

teamOn Tuesday the cross country season kicked off at Bishop Walsh where the first race of the WSAS Cross Country League took place. After a huge number of children trying out last week, a squad of 8 boys and 8 girls was picked. As usual, this coincided with Year 6 being at Howtown but this gave an opportunity for our new Year 5s to show us their talents.

It was a lovely evening and conditions were excellent. Wearing our new school Tshirts and big smiles, our team set off racing around the playing fields at Bishop Walsh. 

The boys ran first then, as they reached the 3/4 point, the girls started. Señora Stevens was torn between shouting encouragement and organising but managed to do both, and the races went well. Every one of our team finished strongly, and those that had finished shouted encouragement at their teammates, some even turning round and cheering when they'd only just finished and were still short of breath. Particularly well done to Jalen, Ben and Joe who finished 10th, 12th and 39th respectively, and Olivia, Mariah and Kirstie who finished 25th 26th and 42nd in their race. 

Señora Stevens was very proud of all of them and was especially pleased by the excellent attitude and good manners they showed to other adults and their fellow competitors. They were excellent ambassadors for Whitehouse Common. Year 6 - you're going to have to work hard to regain your places on the team!

I'm sure many of you will be happy to know that we have also been sent the finishing positions! Please [click here] to see this.

What a fantastic day we had!

 Hundreds of children and adults turned out to battle the blazing heat and sunshine in Sutton Park last Sunday (9th July) to take part in our Fun Run, raising money for their school and the Norman Laud Association. 

Our Whitehouse Common runners looked fantastic in their green t-shirts and it really made a difference to see us all as one a big team - a huge thank you to our sponsors Ian George and Carrie Gibson of Principal Business Solutions, and Ellis and Bridget Boughton of Four Oaks School of Soccor. A big thank you, also, to Daniel from Principal Business Solutions who came along to support us on the day (pictured in the team photo).

Whitehouse Common were extremely well respresented with over 100 entrants - not bad to say it was our first year!

I was incredibly proud of all our children who showed amazing perseverance throughout the very challenging course and gave it that last big push as they sped past me near the finish line (the promise of ice-cream at the end maybe helping a little bit!).

A huge WELL DONE to all the children and adults who took part from all four schools - you were all amazing! 

I am very much looking forward to next year already - I even think we could get to the 200 entrants mark!
