DLP Cross Country Autumn 2017
On Friday 1st December 157 children from the seven DLP primary schools braved the fresh cold but sunny morning to take part in the first Cross Country races organised by the Dartmoor School Sport Partnership.
The event took place on the fields and grass banks around Dawlish Leisure Centre. The race course was set out to make an interesting and challenging course suitable for each age group.
Leaders from Dawlish Community College marshalled the event ensuring all pupils were motivated and stayed on track. A group of the leaders took it in turns to run at the back of each race and helped those who needed that extra bit of encouragement.
The children were a delight all morning displaying sheer grit and determination to keep battling and not giving up. They were also so encouraging to their fellow team mates cheering them on from the side lines. There were so many individual success stories that I am such staff will celebrate back at their schools. There were many proud teachers, parents and grandparents – albeit a bit chilly by the end!
At the end of the morning the results were as follows;
|Year 3 & 4 TEAM POSITIONS
|Year 5 & 6 TEAM POSITIONS
|Year 3 & 4 GIRLS
|Year 3 & 4 BOYS
|Year 5 & 6 GIRLS
|Year 5 & 6 BOYS
We look forward to seeing you all at the next Cross Country in March 2018!
