On Thursday 2nd November 27 pupils from KS2 competed at Temple Park Leisure Centre in the South Tyneside Cross Country Finals.

Each child completed in their respective year group events, comprising of between 40 and 50 children from various schools in the borough.

All of our children, performed well, working hard and demonstrating great determination.

Outstanding performers were:

Cassie Howard (Y3) who lead from the very start and was never headed. She stormed to a convincing victory in the opening race of the day. A great talent with so much potential in the future.

Another highlight was Alexa Reid (Y4) who paced her race well to finish in 3rd place, finishing strongly and catching the leaders. She was ably supported by early leader Shari Viney (Y4), who faded to finish a wonderful 4th too.

Other top 10 finishers were Charlie Elliot (Y4) 7th and Ruby Sharp (Y3) 9th.
