SWSSP Friendly Cross Country Match at OLOL

The Southend West School Sport Partnership's 3rd inter-school friendly cross country match took place on Tuesday 26th February at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School with children taking part from Edwards Hall Primary School, Prince Avenue, Leigh North Street, Saint Pierre, St Marys, Heycroft and Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School.

The racing was split into year groups with the Year 3 boys and girls setting off first for their 2 lap, 1000m route. The Year 4s were up next following the same route before the Year 5 and Year 6 races were held over 3laps, totalling approximately 1500m. All runners did extremely well with everybody completing the course with huge support from parents and teachers.

The afternoon's races gave children experience of being in a competitive environment which will have helped build their confidence for future competitions. 

The next friendly cross country match will be held at Edwards Hall Primary School on Tuesday 19th March, with the first race going off at 3:45pm. As with our previous matches, it is free to enter but we ask that you email [email protected] to let us know you intend to compete.

A big thank you must go out to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School for allowing us to use their facilities and to Andy Abel, Grace Marsland and Alison Pearce for all their help in setting and clearing the course.

We hope to see more of you at our next race,

The Southend West School Sports Partnership
