Sunny Skies & High Spirits for 2024 Cross Country

A round of applause for all who ran in Friday’s 2024 AC Cross Country – you did your House proud. Everyone who took part was a champion, whether they ran, walked or, like one Year 13, ambled with a walking stick.

From the first race to the last our students gave it their all. For some that lasted only a few metres, others a kilometre or two, but the majority of our akōnga soldiered home still running.

Mr Watson’s weather radar was right on the money – switching to Friday delivered sunny skies and a relatively solid gully track for competitors. Kudos to our student leaders and staff runners, especially Mr Kevin Elder, who ran the course numerous times to jolly students onwards.

Who won the House bragging rights? Stay tuned next week when the winning House and list of individual champions is revealed!

Thanks to all who organised, supported and participated in this calendar highlight. Here are some photos of the day. We’ll roll out more later this week. Kia manahau! Enjoy!
