We were disappointed at the disruption to the Cross Country schedule caused by the severe winter weather which led to the cancellation of some of the races that we usually compete in. We are hopeful that we will be able to return to 'normal' during the 2018-19 cross country season.
We would like to say a huge well done to our cross country runners, who were up bright and early on Saturday 10th December ready to take part in a race at Bablake Playing Fields. Oliver, Nikita, Nathaniel, Ebalo, Muhammed and Carl all completed the race, which was approximately one and a quarter miles across muddy fields. Their behaviour was excellent and they were fantastic representatives for Moat House.
On Saturday 1st April, five of our keen cross country runners took part in a championship race at Bablake playing fields. The children (Nafisa, Alisha, Nafhat, Divine and Ya-Awa) all did a fantastic job of representing Moat House and they all completed their race. A special mention must go to Nafisa who was keen to get up early and take part in the race, even though it was her birthday!
On Saturday 19th March, eleven of our keen cross country runners took part in relay races at Bablake playing fields. The children (Devaughan, William, Marcio, Mitchell, Jibril, Jaffer, Nurya, Nelly, Nafhat, Kiera, Maja and Mya) all did a fantastic job of representing Moat House and they all completed their race. A special mention must go to Jaffer, who showed excellent sportsmanship by congratulating a fellow runner as they both crossed the finishing line, along with Jibril who represented Moat House in the mixed relay team as well as the boys’ team so was doubly tired at the end of the morning!
