Cross Country
On Friday 20 April, keen runners from the Primary and Secondary running squads participated in a practice run ahead of the new district cross country competition. This provided the runners an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the course ahead of the competition on May 4. Well done for braving the rainy conditions, this level of dedication will pay off next week.

Good luck to the following Secondary students who will be competing in the competition:

Primary 

Due to a number of late withdrawals, there will only be one team will be participating in JTAS Year Four Rugby. The keen Year Four students that are participating are encouraged to continue to attend training sessions and develop their skills.

Thank you to Mrs Wright and Mrs Abeyewardene for their help with the holiday Cross Country training sessions that took place at the Primary Campus.  There was an average of around 40 runners over the four days from both Primary and Secondary Campus, and I am sure they all benefited from the opportunity.

The first Southern Scorpions District Cross Country Carnival will take place on Friday, 4 May at Waterford Rugby League Club and Riverdale Park, Meadowbrook. Some Cross Country runners will be invited to attend the Queensland All Schools Cross Country Championships on Saturday, 5  May at Rivermount College.
